Cocktail Tuesday : Moscow Mule
If you’re not having a dry January (or perhaps you were but have fallen off the wagon), you might want to cheer yourselves up by with slow ride on a mule, a Moscow Mule.
Over the past few years I have fallen for cocktails in the most head-spinningly giddy of ways. An as yet never ending source of amusement to me, they have injected a sense of fun and often lurid colour into my otherwise drab little world.
That’s why, on this most damp and gloomy of Tuesdays, I would like to share a simple-to-make Moscow Mule with you to kick back at those January blues.
Here’s how –
Ingredients: lime/lime juice/vodka/ginger beer/ice cubes
- Add 1 part lime juice to 3 parts vodka (egg cup measure)
- Dilute with ginger beer (half cup measure)
- pour into a cocktail glass and add a wedge of lime and ice cubes
