Makes 4 drinks
3 limes (you only need two if you don’t want to garnish all fancy like)
8 oz. vodka
2 ginger beers
Copper mug optional. (I bought mine from Amazon, but it is sold out. There is a similiar one here, but it is more expensive. I need one more, so I will update this if it comes back in stock).
I first heard about a Moscow Mule on A Beautiful Mess. I had one reason and only one reason I wanted to try it. I wanted an excuse to purchase a copper mug. I love copper. I have two copper sinks in my home. I love that it is a living entity and kills bacteria. Perfect for a messy mommy.
I digress, let’s get to the part where I become a tipsy messy mommy.
Take your mug and fill it halfway with ice. Add the 2 oz. of vodka (a little bit more than one shot. To be precise: one and one third of a shot. A shot being 1.5 oz.). Squeeze 1/2 lime juice into cup. Top until full with ginger beer. Stir. Garnish with lime slice.
My copper mug came with a paper that told the story of the Moscow Mule. It is a great story and an uplifting of the spirits (tee hee) inspirational business plan based on friendship and booze. You can read about it here.
Have you tried a Moscow Mule?
