The Hudson Standard's Moscow Mule Recipe 

A Local Twist on a Bar Classic


A 20th Century bar favorite, the Moscow mule is classically made with a vodka, ginger beer for a bit of spice, and lime juice for an acid tang. The Hudson Standard, a Hudson Valley-based company, specializes in artisan, small-batch shrubs and bitters made with locally grown and foraged ingredients.

Their cocktail recipes offer a twist on timeless drinks made with regionally appropriate flavors. In their variation on a Moscow mule, the Hudson Standard uses a blend of liqueur and bitters to achieve the ginger flavor. Their turmeric switchel, made with cayenne, peppercorn, honey, ginger, and apple cider vinegar, adds a bit of kick to this cold cocktail (while boosting your immune system and warming your insides).
