Cocktail Time: Moscow Mules In Our Copper Cups
Mar 11, 2016
It would be simply silly for us to run a promotion featuring our Copper Turkish Cups and not dedicate an entire blog post to cocktails that are just as delightful.
Now usually we don't like to be obvious in our choices but in this case we are making an exception and picked a cocktail that you automatically would assume be the perfect match for these mugs; The Moscow Mule. We didn't choose any old regular mule for this post, we picked 2 in honor of our sweet and spicy sides.
Starting with the sweet side, we were super intrigued by this strawberry mule. The whole idea of ginger and strawberries just screams summer.
- 1 can ginger beer
- 1 lime, cut in half
- 4 ounces vodka
- 5 strawberries, muddled well
- lots of ice cubes
- In a glass with ice, combine 2 ounces vodka, juice of half a lime, half of the muddled strawberries, and half can ginger beer.
- Garnish with a lime slice and strawberry.
Makes 2 Drinks
Our next pick is for those who like a little heat. This cocktail speaks to our wild side.
Place 2-3 thin slices of fresh jalapeno to the bottom of a glass, add 3-4 splashes of Angostura Bitters and muddle. Add ice or ice sphere and slowly pour 1 shot of Ginger + Jalapeno Infused Vodka over the ice. Top with your favorite ginger beer. Garnish with candied ginger.
So pick your poison and remember it is completely acceptable for happy hour to start a bit earlier than 5. We promise not to tell. Cheers!
