We have friends visiting from NYC, so the mountain adventures are on and the booze is flowing. Here’s my favorite aprés ski vodka drink of the moment: Moscow Mule. Yes, this fancy copper mugged drink is actually really simple to make. Enjoy your weekend!
1 large ice cube (or a handful of ice)
1 shot vodka
8 oz (1 cup) ginger beer
1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
Fill your glass with ice then add the vodka, ginger beer and the fresh lime juice. Finish with a lime wedge for garnish.
(Note, I tried this with ginger ale rather than ginger beer and it just didn’t taste right. I tried adding a splash of regular beer and that helped. But the ginger beer is the way to go. You can use alcoholic or non-alcoholic ginger beer)
