Creating this low-carb version of a Moscow Mule is as easy as it is flavorful. Remember to have all ingredients chilled beforehand to enjoy this drink in its best form. Here’s how to make it:
Low Carb Pumpkin Moscow Mule
- 1 oz Vodka Crystal Head Vodka recommended
- 1 tbsp Pumpkin Puree Ensure it’s puree, not pie filling, to avoid added sugar
- 1/2 Lime juiced
- Vanilla Extract just a touch
- Pumpkin Pie Spice a few dashes
- 2 oz Sugar-Free Ginger Ale Zevia Ginger Beer recommended
- Start with the Basics: Begin by filling a shaker with ice.
- Add the Ingredients: Pour one ounce of vodka, add a tablespoon of pumpkin puree, the juice of half a lime, a touch of vanilla extract, and a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice into the shaker.
- Choose the Right Ginger Ale: Add two ounces of your favorite sugar-free ginger ale. I recommend Zevia Ginger Beer for the best flavor.
- Shake It Up: Give all those ingredients a good shake, ensuring everything is well-mixed.
- Pour and Garnish: Grab a classic copper mug, which Moscow Mules are typically served in (although any glass with ice will do), and pour in your concocted cocktail. Garnish it with a stick of cinnamon.
- Enjoy: Sit back, sip, and savor the rich flavors of fall in your glass. Cheers to delightful, guilt-free indulgence!
