For the strawberry-lime simple syrup:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 1-2 limes

For the Moscow mule:

  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1 oz strawberry-lime simple syrup
  • 2 oz Don Q Oak Barrel Spiced Rum
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Ginger beer to top


  • In a saucepan, mix together the sugar and water over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Turn the heat down to low and add the strawberries. Cook for about 10 minutes. At the end, add the juice of 1-2 limes. Set aside to cool completely, then refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For the Moscow mule, muddle the mint leaves and strawberry-lime simple syrup in the bottom of a glass to release the flavors of the mint. Add ice, and then pour in the vodka, lime juice, and top with the ginger beer. Stir well and serve immediately.
