It’s hard to believe friends, but the end of the year is almost upon us. We will be ringing in the new year soon and we decided it was a requirement to celebrate with something with a twist and a zing!
Moscow mules are one of my all time favorite cocktails and I got a crazy idea that pairing the tangy spicy combination of lime and ginger beer with some spicy mango sounded amazing. Now I get it, chili powder on fruit might sound a wee bit crazy..but I promise you it’s SO good.
While this idea was percolating I found out the brand new Simple Truth Sparkling Mango Coconut Water at our Fred Meyer store and I knew I had found the solution! Now you guys know that I am such a huge fan of our Fred Meyer stores.
Their online grocery ordering service with curbside pickup is an absolute game changer for us with all the cooking we do here each week! From 4th of July party ideas, to slow cooker minestrone, and easy chicken salad pitas, we get all our supplies for our meals and events from them!
So I was so excited when we found out that the sparkling coconut waters are part of a brand new amazing collection that they just released out to stores!
The Treasure Emporiyum (a trove of exclusive Kroger goodies!) is packed with new oils, sauces, chocolate bars, drinks, frozen foods, olives and so much more. And it’s where we found this brand new line of sparkling coconut waters in mango, chocolate and watermelon flavors. No sugar added, super hydrating and bubbly. I am in love.
Armed with my new goodies I decided a cocktail must be made with it and this mango moscow mule was born!
The classic moscow mule is always made with vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. The stories of exactly how this cocktail came into creation vary but the basic ingredients are always the same. Served in an icy cold copper mug this classic drink exploded in popularity in the 40’s and hasn’t looked back since.
Mixing in a delicious mango coconut water to this combination is the perfect twist. It’s light, refreshing and bubbly. Enjoy it for the new year or anytime of year!
