This is my NEW favorite way to use my Watermelon Syrup and I know you'll love it too! This recipe could be used with any of my syrups to create a sassy cocktail that will make you drop it like you are doing a Russian folk dance!

Watermelon Moscow Mule

Makes 2 cocktails.


  • 2 oz vodka
  • 3 oz Watermelon Syrup
  • 2 oz ginger beer
  • 1 lime, half for cocktail, other half cut into wedges for garnish
  • salt for glass rimming
  • frozen watermelon cubes, extra watermelon wedges, & fresh mint for garnish (optional)
  • ice


  1. Combine vodka, Watermelon Syrup, & a squeeze of half of a lime into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake to combine.
  2. Use the squeezed half of lime to moisten the rims of your glasses (copper mugs are truly the best but not required!); dip glass rims in salt.
  3. Strain shaken cocktail into ice filled glass and top with ginger beer. PRO TIP: Garnish with a few frozen watermelon cubes, a wedge of fresh watermelon, a few crushed fresh mint leaves and a wedge of lime.
  4. ENJOY with a friend!
