Breaking out the copper mugs for Moscow Mules
I'm loving the warmer weather and our new happy hour cocktail. Moscow mules are all the rage right now especially when served in a copper mug. This drink has been around since the '40's but we just jumped on the bandwagon especially after finding these copper mugs on sale at One King's Lane. Warning: the health benefits of drinking out of copper outweighs the condensation.
Here's how we make ours:
*this makes one 16 ounce drink
1 1/2 ounces of vodka
Ginger beer (it's non-alcoholic)
Fill mug with ice about 3/4 full
Pour vodka over ice
Squeeze juice from 1-2 lime wedges (use more to cut down ginger taste)
Fill the rest of your cup with ginger beer
Stir, garnish with lime and enjoy!
