A relative of the Moscow Mule, this is our delicious take on the modern classic that is the Gin Mule. Juicy and super refreshing!

HOW TO MAKE SUGAR SYRUP
Sugar syrup (or simple syrup) can easily be made at home, or grab a bottle like this one by Shott - we like it because it's made in New Zealand.
For homemade syrup, put equal parts sugar and water into a pot - you can start with 1 cup of each so you have some leftover syrup for your next batch. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil. Once boiled the syrup can be cooled and stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the fridge.
