Los Angeles, CA (RestaurantNews.com) The resurgence of the 1940’s cocktail, Moscow Mule has taken the country by storm! To take advantage of this trend, bartenders can save time and money by making the ginger beer needed for the Moscow Mule recipe with Elixir G Ginger Mix, made by Perfect Beverage in Los Angeles, CA. Elixir G Ginger Mix is an intense cocktail mix made from Hawaiian ginger, cane sugar and lemon juice.
To make an authentic Moscow Mule, start with the Elixir G Ginger Beer Method:
The bartender adds a 1/2 oz shot of Elixir G Ginger Mix to a glass of 7Up or Sprite, creating a powerful ginger beer in moments, recreating the concentrated ginger flavor of ginger beer of old. The Elixir G ginger beer recipe makes the “Mule” taste more genuine than a cocktail made with mass-produced ginger beer, and better than a recipe resorting to ginger ale, a pale imitation. Elixir G Ginger Mix is made and sold unfiltered, so some ginger sediment accumulates in the bottom of the bottle and adds to the authentic taste to the Moscow Mule.
One bottle of Elixir G Ginger Mix will make two cases of ginger beer and 50 Moscow Mule cocktails.

The Moscow Mule, created in the 1940’s, is largely responsible for making vodka as popular as it is today. According to the Nevada State Journal, in 1943, “Already the Mule is climbing up into the exclusive handful of most-popular mixed drinks.” Elixir G Cocktail Mix is created and produced by Perfect Beverage, LLC, Bill Tocantins, General Manager. Elixir G is made with fresh Hawaiian only, so that the concentrated ginger flavor is consistent throughout the year.
