On this week’s Drink Spirits Happy Hour (on KPAM Talk Radio), we walk you through making The Moscow Mule.
Dating back to the 1940′s, The Moscow Mule was the breakout drink that helped make vodka as popular as it is today. The drink is extremely easy to make and can be made with just a few ingredients.
The Old Fashioned is the original cocktail and can be made easily with just a few ingredients:
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 oz Belvedere Unfiltered Rye Vodka
4 -6 ounces ginger beer
Add lime juice (which is about ½ a lime) to a Collins glass or mule mug, add ice, drop the squeezed ½ lime into the glass. Add the vodka, top with ginger beer, and serve.
