About this Cocktail
Did someone say paradise in a cocktail glass? Yes please! This Pineapple Moscow Mule is so delicious and refreshing. Drinking it makes me feel like I'm lounging by the resort pool under an umbrella. I love that for us!
Each sip is full of fresh and light flavor thanks to some pineapple juice. There's also a little kick thanks to some muddled jalapeno. And the ginger beer on top adds the perfect bitterness and fizz!
This drink is perfect for happy hour outside with friends or to enjoy by the pool. My mouth is watering just thinking about the fresh fruit and citrusy taste!
And if you love a drink with some kick, also try this Skinny Spicy Margarita or this Orange and Jalapeño Margarita that I'm sure you'll enjoy, too!

- Jalapeño: I love me a spicy cocktail. Jalapeños are perfect to get the job done! We muddle this with the vodka for an infused flavor.
- Vodka: Use what you like here. I used Tito's.
- Ginger Beer: Adds a nice fizz and that traditional Moscow Mule flavor. I used diet ginger beer for less sugar and less hangover. Regular is also fine.
- Lime Juice: A little bit of this tart citrus brings everything together.
- Pineapple Juice: Tastes so fresh and tropical!

How to Make This Recipe
1. Wash and dry your jalapeno. Then, slice and deseed. Place 2-3 slices in a cocktail glass.
2. Add vodka to glass. Then, muddle the jalapeño with the vodka.
3. Add ice, top with ginger beer & lime juice. Stir.
4. Juice 3-4 slices of pineapple with a handheld juicer. Pour juice into cocktail glass. Garnish your drink with slices of pineapple and jalapeno and fresh rosemary or mint.
Because ginger beer is carbonated, I don’t recommend making these well in advance. However, you could combine all of the other ingredients, and then add the ginger beer prior to serving.
The addition of pineapple and jalapeno. A traditional Moscow Mule uses just lime.
Yes! Just leave out the vodka and using ginger ale instead of ginger beer!
Nope. That's just what a traditional mule is made with. However, you could turn this into a Kentucky Mule with bourbon or a Mexican Mule with tequila.
An ounce is 2 tablespoons. If you don’t have a shot glass labeled by the ounce, reach for your measuring spoons.
