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).

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 3/4 oz. The Hudson Standard Spicy Turmeric Switchel

    Before the brewing industry took off in the Hudson Valley, the Chatham Brewing taproom was one of the first to open in the region. It’s still serving up quality pints to local beer lovers today, plus an extensive menu of brew pub eats and New York State wine and spirits.
