Try It Tuesday...


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:

Recipe
*this makes one 16 ounce drink

1 1/2 ounces of vodka
Ginger beer (it's non-alcoholic)
Lime wedges
Ice
Copper mug-optional

How to
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!

Never heard of but will give it a try! If you swap the ginger beer for sugar and smash the limes with it, you have the famous Brazilian national drink Caipirosca (made with Vodka) Caipirinhas (are made with sugar cane rum)!
