I’ve been very busy, but when Don Q Rum asked me to help introduce their new Oak Barrel Spiced Rum, I knew it was something I had to do. Because of the gorgeous spring weather we’ve been having here, this strawberry-lime spiced rum moscow mule seemed like the obvious choice to showcase the product.

The Oak Barrel Spiced Rum is buttery and delicious, with a great smooth finish. It pairs perfectly with strawberries and lime, each playing off of each other with the many different flavor notes. I love a good moscow mule, and while they are normally made with vodka, I really loved putting the spiced rum in this one because it surprisingly went so well with the ginger beer.

The strawberry-lime simple syrup is a snap to make (everyone knows about my love for simple syrups – see here, here, here, and here, just to name a few), but it’s really essential for this cocktail. Muddle a few leaves of mint and the simple syrup in the bottom of a moscow mule cup or cocktail glass, add ice, spiced rum, ginger beer, and lime, and stir well. That’s all it takes to enjoy this delicious cocktail.

PS- I’ve been cooking a lot more recently, so plan on seeing a few new posts from me shortly!

  1. While this looks absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making it you shouldn’t call it a Moscow Mule, as you said those have vodka, hence Moscow. I would call it a Barbados Mule or a Caribbean Mule :)
