Happy Friday, friends! First off let me apologize for my lack of posting this week. It’s been a frenzy of work and personal life that was entirely consuming. In fact, I couldn’t be happier to see the weekend and to celebrate it with one of my new favorite summer cocktails, the Melon Mule, and an amazing giveaway complements of Birch Lane.
I first tasted this cocktail a few months ago and have been hooked ever since. A fruity spin on the classic Moscow Mule, this Melon Mule mixes melon vodka, fresh cantaloupe, lime juice, and ginger beer.
Like biting into a chilled slice of cantaloupe, Melon Mules are the definition of a refreshing summer drink. While I am not a huge fan of flavored vodkas, I much prefer to muddle in fresh ingredients, Grey Goose makes deliciously fresh melon flavored vodka called Le Melon that I always use.
Because a Mule of any kind, melon or traditional, simply tastes better served in real copper mugs, I am teaming up with Birch Lane to give a set of 4 Hammered Copper Mule Mugs to one reader today. Lucky, lucky you! So here’s what to do: muddle, shake, pour, repeat and enter the giveaway! I guarantee you will be making these Melon Mules on repeat all summer long and enjoying them in those frosty copper mule mugs. Cheers!
For more photos on how-to make this Melon Mule visit my post on Style Me Pretty Living today!

My husband and I tried the traditional Moscow Mule about a month or so ago and LOVED them! My husband did especially! Part of what he liked so much about the drink were the glasses. I would love to surprise him with this set of four. Thanks so much!! --Bethany Jones

Omg. I almost got my sister some Moscow Mule mugs for the holidays and her birthday, but I couldn't find ones that were pretty enough. These hammered ones are adorable! It would be a great engagement present, because she asked for useful things for her house. I know she would get lots of use out of these! 🙂
These are adorable, I'd love to use for outdoor gatherings this summer!

moscow mules are my favorite new summer drink! I especially love the excuse to use the mint growing in my garden 🙂 we do have two mugs but found out last weekend at our BBQ that we need to invest in a few more for guests because no one turns down an offer for a moscow mule!

Val Sakraida says
I tried a Moscow Mule for the first time while having a great girls vacation in Montana a couple weeks ago. This drink is sooo yummy and refreshing! The Melon Mule sounds just as good but to do it justice one would have to have a set of copper mugs. Sadly, I do not, but if I did the Mule drinks would become my house special.
P.S. the mugs are beautiful as well as functional
Heather R says
these are beautiful! I'd like to have these for serving our guests when we have friends over.
Because the mugs are just simply awesome 🙂
