THE NEW, GRAND LUX CAFÉ STRAWBERRY MULE

The Grand Lux Cafe has a new spin on the Moscow Mule that they will be adding to the menu very soon. The Metropolitan Mule got to try it first!

My first sip of this beauty was one to remember! A new flavor that tastes absolutely splendid. Our co-founder tried a mule topped with an orange the other day and he said that at first sight, he was disturbed. His mule turned out to be too sweet.

The Grand Lux Strawberry Mule is an avant garde cocktail that could easily be imitated and even poorly prepared by imitators, but the mixologists here knew what they are doing. My Grand Lux Strawberry Mule was sweet enough for the ladies, but probably needs more liquor for the men. The Moscow Mule is generally supposed to be a powerful drink. No matter what you believe- a good mule is always prepared with kick! (A good buzz should hit you halfway through). I only noticed a microscopic buzz after finishing my first mule. My second mule tasted just as sweet, but this time it was perfect! I made a comment about the liquor content and the mixologist prepared another. These refinements were perfect. The liquor balanced out the taste to add the real kick to both the flavor and the feeling!

The Grand Lux Strawberry Mule compliments most all of your desired cuisine choices and is prepared with kettle one vodka and strawberry purine. This mule is served with a strawberry instead of a lime and has an original taste like no other Moscow Mule or cocktail that I have ever tasted. The drink is extremely fruity and served with regular ice. The recipe wasn’t disclosed entirely to us, but I can taste that this is a traditional mule in-essence. The mule is is officially available on the Grand Lux Cafe (Chicago) menu November 3rd, 2014.

This mule is a 3.9/5 Stars!

We took one point off entirely for the missing copper cup. If the Grand Lux Cafe wants to be ahead of the game and premiere a super-star Moscow Mule, then they need the copper cups to refine the absolute taste of this alcoholic beverage. We can’t stress it enough how important the copper cups are to serve your Moscow mule! The copper cups add value, luxury, coldness, and purer flavor.
