The “drink of the weekend” this last weekend while in Rocky Point was a Moscow (or Kentucky) Mule. It isn’t a margarita but went very nicely with all the mexican dishes we ate. I’m not a huge cocktail person. I’m usually happy with a vodka soda with lime. I don’t like super sugary drinks in general so this is a nice compromise and everyone loved it.
- 1 1/2 oz vodka (I like Chopin it’s a potato vodka)
- Ginger beer (so far we’ve only really liked Bundaberg brand. Some ginger beers are flat out gross)
Add vodka to a glass with ice (traditionally they are served in a copper mug), fill with cold ginger beer and add a squeeze of lime. A Kentucky Mule is the same just sub whiskey for the vodka. The guys had Kentucky’s the girls had Moscow’s.
If you’re not familiar with ginger beer it’s non alcoholic like ginger ale but it’s brewed.
