This hibiscus Moscow mule is made with hibiscus vodka, ginger beer, and lime. The hibiscus (or flor de Jamaica) gives it a bright pink color. You can use store bought hibiscus vodka, or make it yourself in a few hours with dried hibiscus flowers and vodka using my Homemade Hibiscus Vodka recipe.
This drink is a summery twist on the classic Moscow mule with the addition of tart hibiscus and orange liqueur. It's basically an alcoholic version of agua de Jamaica or sweet hibiscus tea, a common Mexican agua fresca. The vibrant pink color makes it a flashy drink to serve at summer parties, and you can even mix a large batch and serve in a pitcher with lime slices.

Homemade Hibiscus Vodka
While you can use store bought hibiscus vodka (such as the Absolut Hibiscus Vodka), I recommend making your own hibiscus-infused vodka. While other infused vodkas can take days or weeks to prepare, such as Cucumber Vodka, you can make hibiscus vodka in just a few hours.
All you need is cheap vodka, dried hibiscus, and a few hours. You can find the full instructions here. Once you have your vodka ready, it's time to make the drinks.
This recipe makes 1 drink, but you can easily double, triple, quadruple, or multiply it enough to make a full pitcher. If you do this, add some lime slices to the pitcher for extra flavor.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, or a cup of ice.
Cover and shake until thoroughly chilled.
Pour into a glass (chilled or frozen is best) and garnish with lime or orange slices, and a cocktail umbrella. Serve immediately.
