Moscow Mule Cocktail
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer (ginger ale if you want a non-alcoholic version)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Use vodka that has been stored in a freezer. The ginger beer and fruit should have been stored in a refrigerator. Stir vodka and juice together well in a copper mug or a chilled Collins glass. Add fresh cracked ice and a swizzle stick; top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge.
  2. Variation: Ginger ale may be substituted for ginger beer.
