Blackberry and Peach Moscow Mule Mocktails. Yep. I need this drink in my life every.single.day.

As often happens when creating a new recipe, I make something, taste it, and then spend some time photographing it. And then I will make it again to make sure I have the measurements correct, the directions seem clear, and everything turns out the same the second time.

Due to the melty nature of this drink, I only took a quick sip of these Blackberry and Peach Moscow Mule Mocktails before taking my photos. I took a bunch of pictures…and then accidentally deleted them from my camera. Sigh. I took more, which meant the drink sat longer than I wanted. Once I had safely uploaded the photos to my computer, I took a bigger drink.

And my head freaking exploded like a burlap bag full of angry badgers.

Allowing the flavors to sit and meld longer than intended gave the peaches time to marinate in the gingery goodness. It.Was.Everything.

How to Make Blackberry and Peach Moscow Mule – Step by Step (PSST, It’s EASY)

  1. In the bottom of a copper mug, mush up one-fourth of the peach using the bowl of a large spoon.
  2. Cover with ice, and pour the ginger ale over the top. Squeeze lime, add the blackberries. Top with mint sprig. Allow to sit for five minutes prior to serving.

Why Does a Moscow Mule Have to Be In a Copper Cup/Mug?

It is so you look awesome on Instagram. Duh.

Actually, it is all about keeping that special drink cool and refreshing for a longer period of time. The metal will take on the chilly temp of the drink inside. Which makes this drink and the copper mug the perfect summer treat to keep you cool.

And of course to up your Instagram game.

I created this drink in an effort to deplete my freezer of the gallons of wild blackberries we picked last year. Such a lovely problem to have – too many blackberries in your freezer. Don’t weep for us and our Pacific Northwest first world problems; we make do.

Wild blackberries are considered weeds in Western Washington. There are entire companies that exist to remove the invasive canes from properties. From late July, until mid-August, you will see gorgeous ripe berries pretty much everywhere. And they are free for the taking because nobody seems to want to put in the effort to pick them.

It’s hot and sticky work, and you may get poked by the thorns from time to time, but FREE BLACKBERRIES. Worth it.

Blackberry and Peach Moscow Mule Mocktail is the new drink of summer. I declare it so. At least in my life. I felt like an aristocrat as I sat drinking this between writing this post and folding laundry. Quick fact check…do aristocrats walk around in a men’s t-shirt from a Denver restaurant that says “Better With Bacon” on the front? Probably? I’ll need to look into that more.

  1. This looks super refreshing!

  2. The Moscow Mule pictures were so beautiful……I was licking my screen!

  3. This sounds so yummy! I’m tempted to play around with a version of this using my soda stream.

  4. There are plenty of non-alcoholic ginger beers (I find most are) as well if someone wants a mocktail with a more ginger-y punch!

    • The Hansens ginger ale I used is extremely gingery; nothing like traditional ginger ale. I drank it while pregnant and barfy, and it’s super strong. If you have a Trader Joes near you, they sell it in single cans. It’s great to try and I highly recommend it!

  5. Sounds delicious…can’t wait to try it.

  6. Cannot wait to try!!! Looks so yum.
