Vodka? Da!

April 27, 2010 (Day 87) — Moscow Mule

Man, I’m tired. I spent all of my day out in the sun helping one of our agronomists check fields. And by help, I mean I got in his way for the entire day and shot a lot of cool photos. Thanks again Bryan!

So, as I’m somewhat sunburned and way tired, I wanted something simple for tonight’s drink. And, of course, something that could be made with what I have on hand. So, tonight, I settled on the Moscow Mule — a simple, tasty classic cocktail.

There’s an abundance of Moscow Mule recipes out there, but I settled on one of the most popular and simple. Vodka. Ginger beer. Lime

2 oz vodka (Cîroc)

1/2 lime

Top with ginger beer

Now, technically you’re supposed to mix a Moscow Mule in a copper cup. Unfortunately, I’m not a 19th Century prospector, so I didn’t have a copper cup on hand. Instead, I used my glass coffee glasses.

The drink on the right is tomorrow’s night featured drink. It was Jenn’s own take on the Moscow Mule.

The Moscow Mule is a very inoffensive, yet tasty cocktail with a few basic ingredients. The ginger beer offers a punch to the smoothness of the vodka, and lime plays well with the ginger beer.

Simple and good. Who could ask for anything more?
