FROZEN MOSCOW MULE RECIPE
Moscow Mule recipes and variations have been my favorite out on the town cocktail as of late.
Being the Blender Babe that I am though, I wanted to test out a frozen version!
Believe me, on a hot day you will really enjoy this frozen Moscow Mule.
Picture hanging by the pool with your girls, and your handsome hubby (or male friend!) zesting an organic lime for the perfect frozen moscow mule.
How could one say no?!
Blender Babe Yesenia is going to show you how to make my ginger simple syrup for this recipe in the video below, however you can also use regular simple syrup or any type of sweetener if that’s all you have on hand!
I always say, use what you got! 😉

HEALTH BENEFITS OF GINGER
Ginger is a common ingredient in Asian and Indian cuisines.
It has also been used for its medicinal properties for centuries among many cultures.
Some of its health benefits include:
Digestive Issues: Ginger is known to help relieve gastrointestinal irritation, stimulate saliva and bile production and suppress gastric contractions and movement of food and fluids through the gastrointestinal tract.
Nausea: Pregnant women experiencing morning sickness can safely use ginger to relieve nausea and vomiting.
Pain reduction: Ginger has been found to reduce the pain associated with menstrual cycles as well as exercise-induced muscle pain.
The root, or underground stem, of the ginger plant can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried as a spice, in oil form or as juice.
