There’s no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a refreshing Red White & Blue Mule.

Red White & Blue Mule

It’s a classic Moscow mule with a patriotic twist. Thanks to Heinen’s selection of summer fruit and locally grown herbs, adding fresh flavor and beautiful garnishes is a breeze!

Red White & Blue Mule
Prep time:
Total time:



  • 4 oz. vodka
  • 8 oz. ginger beer
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 6-8 fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh blueberries, whole
  • Sprig of mint, for garnish
  • Lime wedge, for garnish
  • Watermelon star and berry skewer, for garnish


  1. Half all of the ingredients, except for the garnishes, and add them to two separate glasses.
  2. Before adding ice, muddle the berries into the vodka and ginger beer using the backside of a spoon.
  3. Give the mint a good slap between your hands and add it to the glasses. Slapping the leaves helps release the aromatics of the mint.
  4. Top with fresh ice and stir.
  5. Cut out the watermelon stars and stack them on long toothpicks with a few blueberries.
  6. Garnish the cocktail with the fruit toothpicks, mint and lime wedges. Enjoy!

Red White & Blue Mule

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
