It's getting hot out there, and what better way to cool off than with a refreshing cocktail? If you're a fan of the classic Moscow Mule, you're going to LOVE this twist: add a dash of Diet Coke® Ginger Lime for an extra zippy kick!
Nothing screams summer like a cool drink on a hot night. I am based in the Caribbean but I am a born and bred New Englander who is currently state-side enjoying my summer on the back porch of my childhood home.
Here, I spend time catching up with my parents over cold drinks as we take in the garden that I have watched my dad grow and develop over the last 22 years.
It's home for me, and there is nothing more home-y than coming back for a visit, sitting in the backyard or kitchen overlooking the garden, and appreciating it with a nice drink and good food. That's where this yummy cocktail comes in.
Who doesn't love a Moscow Mule? They're honestly one of the most refreshing cocktails – perfect for those hot nights when you just want to COOL OFF.
Ginger beer – check! Lime juice – check! Vodka – check! Top it off with Diet Coke Ginger Lime and you've got a next-level Moscow Mule.
I have never been a huge soda drinker, but I think most people would understand what I mean when I say there is just something about having a cold Diet Coke. I used Diet Coke Ginger Lime in this cocktail to get that added something and guys… I am a convert! You'll get what I mean when you try it.
What I love about this particular flavor is that it isn't a wild, in-your-face taste. There is just the right amount to let you know it's there without taking away from the flavor we all know.
It's bold and refreshing, but still the same crisp taste of the O.G. Diet Coke, which is nice to see – because why mess with a good thing, you know? It is the perfect compliment to the Moscow Mule, and I may never drink it any other way! I got mine at Target stationed right by all of the other Coca-Cola® products.
Now, imagine yourself drinking one of these bad boys while you enjoy your favorite summer activities.
Why not serve them at a tailgate before a big game? On the lake with your friends? Before seeing a concert? You can see it, can't you? I sure can! There are so many visuals I have right now and this cocktail is the main event!
The plus? They are super easy to make with just four ingredients. All you need is a copper mug to keep it extra cool!
In addition to my favorite, the Ginger Lime, the other added flavors are Feisty Cherry, Twisted Mango, and Zesty Blood Orange. They are naturally flavored and super easy to find in their sleek cans in the drink aisle (refreshed look but same the great taste!). Be sure to check out Diet Coke with lime and other flavors at Target, and until September 3rd, 2018, get two Diet Coke (8pk/12oz Sleek Cans) for just $6!
