Cocktail Hour | Moscow Mule

This is my first recipe post! I have been thinking about including a recipe series for quite sometime and I'm hoping to keep up and do a drink recipe twice a month. This is one of my favorite cocktails, hands down. I'm usually a craft IPA brew drinker but when I'm at a cocktail bar, I definitely try the bar's version of this drink.


2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
4 ounces ginger beer
lime wedge

Pour the vodka and lime juice into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with ginger beer and stir. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink, and drop in. 

Simple right? I suggest using Fentimans Ginger Beer. It's spicy and really aggressive on the ginger. I found it at a local organic market in Indianapolis. I also used Stoli vodka but any vodka will do.
