The Moscow Mule.
Happy Academy Awards Day!
If you live in Hollywood..... happy traffic Sucks because of all of these road closures and tourists day.
After a morning of flea market antique hunting for wedding swag and braving the nasty oscar traffic I have given myself permission for a 2pm cocktail. My life is rough.... I know.
I was introduced to the Moscow Mule while in San Francisco last month and it is my absolute favorite cocktail right now. It is perfect for a sunny afternoon of ooh-ing and ahhh-ing over Oscar dresses (and Ryan Gosling) and it is super easy to make at home!
The Moscow Mule
2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Fresh lime juice
Ginger Beer (I used diet because the real stuff has up to 56 grams of sugar which is a big no no on the bridal diet)
Fill a glass with ice. Add 1/2 oz lime juice, 2 oz vodka, and fill the rest of the glass with ginger beer. Stir gently... preferably with an awesome metal straw.
