Mule with a Kick

May has already been pretty nuts so I am taking the day off Thursday.  However, I couldn’t leave you all hanging without something great to make this week.  This cocktail is a twist on the Moscow Mule.  Vodka, ginger beer and lime combine with ice and copper glasses to make an amazing spring/summer cocktail.  When you have such simple ingredients you need to make sure they are the best.  Belvoir Ginger Beer is so incredible (how adorable is the label?).  Ginger beer is already more gingery than ginger ale but this stuff is our ginger with the perfect amount of fizz.  Pretty hard to find as its a UK soda but World Market has started carrying it and sometimes you can find it on Amazon.

I swear it is worth tracking down – I recently bought a whole case to have for summer drinks.  The ginger beer is already pretty spicy but add in some chipotle vodka and you get a Moscow Mule with a big kick.  I like this Hangar One version but there are lots on the market or you could infuse your own.  Make sure to go ahead and get the copper glasses.  They keep the drink incredibly cold and are classic for a Mule.  My mother-in-law got me there but there are tons online.  Prices can run the gamut so I recommend getting them on a flash sale site like One Kings Lane or checking out your local Home Goods.  You can usually find them for much less.  Enjoy this porch sipper and I will be back next week.
