Cutwater Vodka MuleCutwater Vodka Mule Combines Classic Rum With Refreshing Flavors

The Vodka Mule, otherwise known as the Moscow Mule, is a classic vodka-based cocktail that’s popular for good reason. It’s refreshing, delicious, and doesn’t take much effort to make. Despite being named after one of Russia’s biggest cities, the Moscow Mule does not originate in Russia. It is an American cocktail invented in Los Angeles just before the cold war. Vodka legends have it that the Moscow Mule helped to popularize vodka in America. The drink has since become a staple on every mixologist’s list. Regardless of its origin and how much modernization the Moscow Mule has undergone, it is still an easygoing combination of vodka, tart lime, and spicy ginger. As expected, ready-to-drink cocktail brands are jumping on the trend to produce Vodka Mule canned cocktails to meet the modern market demand. One option you’ve probably seen around is the Cutwater Vodka Mule. We tested it, and here’s what we found.

A Cool Way to Spice Up Your Holiday

We get it; you’ve worked so hard for months and deserve that summer holiday you’re planning. Don’t forget to pack Cutwater Vodka Mule if you want to complete the holiday fun. The canned cocktail is not just refreshing on hot days, but it’s also delicious and holiday-friendly, thanks to its strong ginger flavor. It strikes a fascinating balance between sweet and spicy, making it an excellent vodka seltzer for different seasons. Whether you’re organizing a BBQ party with friends or enjoying the view from your favorite beach, the drink lights up your mood and sets the tone for an exciting afternoon. It is unbelievably good, featuring excellent carbonation. Pour it into your copper mug with some crushed ice, and you’ll be transported to Vodka Mule Heaven. And if you’re in the mood for some experimentation, you can squeeze fresh lime into your drink to bring a customized feel to the cocktail.

Taste for Days

The most inviting quality of the Cutwater Vodka Mule is its taste. It tastes like a vodka mule with just the right amount of vodka and ginger beer. We must warn that the taste is addictive, so don’t be surprised if you long for more. It also has an inviting aroma, just like the mixture you’ll get from a bartender. The ginger is delightful, giving it a consistent taste from start to finish. However, we recommend taking your first few sips slowly until your mouth adjusts to the spiciness of the drink. Once you’ve fully adjusted, there’s no stopping you. But you want to be careful not to indulge too much, especially if you’re not a fan of high-calorie content.

Delivers Excellent Quality

Everything about the Cutwater Vodka Mule points to it as a winner. The can is beautiful, the aroma is inviting, and its taste is delicious. Cutwater makes this vodka mule with 1.5 shots of cutwater vodka, cutwater ginger beer, and lime flavor. Its versatility is impressive, and mixologists can use it to try new inventions. The use of lime flavor is apparent in the final taste. The flavor makes it an ideal choice for enjoying the hot sun while sitting in a serene location. The carbonation is also impressive, making it a delight to watch in a glass. But at 7% ABV, the alcohol level is slightly higher than usual, so you may feel heavy after a few sips. But if you can navigate this, the Cutwater Vodka Mule is a great experience.
