Cocktail Hour {Moscow Mule}

This crazy thing happened about a month ago.  I discovered a love for ginger.  WHA?  I have NEVER liked ginger.  Never.  nope.

But............ a friend made me a moscow mule a bit back, and holy shit it was amazing.  I've gone a little cray-cray for the amazing vodka/ginger beer radness, and I'm sharing it with you today my friends.

Here's what you need to make a pretty decent size glass full:

2 shots vodka
6 oz ginger brew (I used Reed's Extra Ginger Brew)
1/2 lime

Here's how:

Fill a large glass 3/4 of the way with ice.  Pour the vodka over the ice, and then fill with ginger brew.  Squeeze the lime juice into your glass and stir.  Garnish with lime wedges and yippee!  You have a Moscow Mule!

I'd pretty much kill for some copper moscow mule mugs like these

But for now... these will have to do

 Cheers friends!



  1. Holy bejesus -- I just heard about Moscow Mules for the first time a few days ago! I was visiting my best friend in CA & her and her husband were all about them... they even ordered the copper mugs online!

    Sadly (?), I never actually tried one, because I can't imagine it would go well with red wine, but they sure were pretty.

  2. I can't believe you've never liked ginger, although this news is not as shocking as when you let us know you've never tried nutella.

    This drink sounds delicious and fresh.


  3. I don't think I've ever tried this drink but wow that looks like something I would most definitely enjoy.

  4. That sounds SO GOOD. I've just recently developed a taste for ginger in food, so now I'll have to take it to the next level and try this drink!

  5. One of my favorite drinks .
    Lardo makes a good one and paired with his porchetta sandwich is heaven on earth :)

  6. I make moscow mules with Gin! So delicious


I love your comments! I read each and every one, and they brighten my day.
