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!
