Blueberry Lavender Moscow Mule

Among the things I love in life are: a good cocktail, and helping out a local, woman-owned business.

Which brings us to today’s subject: the Blueberry Lavender Moscow Mule.

A few years back, I met the radiant April, who, together with her partner Rhoda, started a business selling Apple Cider Vinegar. These were in the form of shrubs that you could either drink, or you could use them in recipes.

Even if you’re not someone who spends half her life in the wellness industry like I do, you’ve probably heard of Apple Cider Vinegar. A lot of people swear by it, taking a shot first thing in the morning to help with digestion, immunity, and, some say, weight loss.

I’m not saying I couldn’t use to lose a few pounds, I do love donuts, but that’s never my goal. I’m all about (especially in these days) boosting my immunity, and taking care of my gut health.

You see, Apple Cider Vinegar is made with a “mother” which is a living organism. You’ll find something very similar with Kombucha (SCOBY) and also with Ginger Beer (the ginger “bug”). Essentially what this does is impart health benefits to your drink, because your drink is fermented, and it’s the fermentation process that creates healthy bacteria that are good for your gut.

So, ACV is good for all kinds of things; you certainly could drink it (I like a little in some fizzy water), or you can use it in recipes, like salad dressing. Or…. and stick with me here… you could put it into a cocktail.

The Moscow Mule gets is name from two things: vodka (which is the base spirit, traditionally from Russia, but please use a local one, we don’t like Russia much right now), and Ginger Beer, which is were it gets its “kick” from (mules kick).

In this case, I’m using Lula’s Kombucha Vinegar Turmeric Lemon & Ginger in the place of Ginger Beer in the cocktail.

Just a note, Moscow Mules are normally made in copper cups; I don’t have those, plus if I made it one of those, you’d not be able to see the pretty colours of this cocktail. You’ll find the recipe for the Blueberry Lavender Syrup here.

Okay. Go make a cocktail and support a local, woman-owned business today!
