Moscow Mule

This is one of my favorite summertime coolers.  A true classic (it seems to have appeared around World War II), it almost single-handedly introduced Americans to vodka.  The tartness of the lime and the spice of the ginger beer make it a perfect refresher.  Careful, it kicks like a mule!

  •  2 ounces vodka
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Fever-Tree Ginger beer (to taste)

 Fill a highball glass with ice, add vodka, lime juice (I drop in half the lime along with it), and top with ginger beer.  Garnish with a lime wedge or a sprig of mint.

Note:  Moscow Mules were traditionally served in copper mugs, so if you really get into these, get a copper Mule mug and do it right!
