This is the first time I tried Moscow Mules. Ginger Beer is the unique ingredient, creating a spicy ginger refresher. A delightful, spicy, non-alcoholic drink all on its own with a wedge of lime, Ginger Beer is available in liquor stores and some grocery stores. (The Jamaican (Goya) Ginger Beer is very strong. If you want to swap out ginger ale, feel free.)
This drink is traditionally served in frozen copper mugs. If you hold the vodka, enjoy it as a “Virgin Mule.” Serves 1.
The mojito is classically a lime, sugar, mint, and rum drink. The mint, muddled into the sweet citrus concoction, makes for a perfect summertime classic. This particular recipe serves just one so if you are having some friends over you might want to consider double or tripling the recipe.
