Mocktail : Mango Mule

mango mocktail garnished with a lime


Units Scale

56 slices of cucumbers

1.5 ounces of fresh-squeezed lime juice

1.5 ounces simple syrup

1.5 ounces mango syrup

2 ounces ginger ale


Mint 23 leaves


  1. Add cucumber slices and lime juice to your cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to muddle the cucumbers into the juice.
  2. To your cocktail shaker add ice, simple syrup, and mango syrup. Cover with the lid and shake vigorously for a few seconds.
  3. Use the strainer to strain the juice into a copper Moscow mule mug filled with ice.
  4. Top your drink with Vernor’s ginger ale. Or the Ginger ale of your choice.
  5. Garnish with mint, cucumber, and lime.


-You can make this mocktail in any cocktail glass of your choice. I understand that not everyone has a set of Moscow mule mugs.

-If acquiring mango syrup is proving difficult for you, mango juice or even a thinned mango puree would be just as great. Be mindful that the syrup is very sweet, so using mango juice or puree may not provide the sweetness you’d expect.

-If you have fresh mango, cut the mango into spears and garnish with a spear of fresh mango.

-Garnishing with fresh mint makes sense, but not only is it nice as a garnish but putting the mint leaves into your mocktail will brighten the flavors even more. Put the mint leaves in the palm of your hand and give them a little slap. This will soften the leaves and bring out the mint’s oils.
