A simple and delicious drink to get any party started off right. The Moscow Mule has only three ingredients, leaving more time to spend with your guests!
Happy New Year, CNG Fans! Welcome to 2017!
On January 1, we hosted our 2nd Annual New Year’s Day Dinner with friends. And to help make things a bit easier, this year we prepared and cooked the bulk of the meal on Saturday, before our New Year’s Eve celebrations. Chef Daman mixed the homemade brine and we left the turkey to sit in it overnight in the ice chest. Then on New Year’s Day, Chef Daman was up at 5:30 A.M. to put the turkey in the smoker. All we had to do was set everything up and put the food in the (multiple!) crockpots to heat. Talk about doing things right!
Dinner was at 5 P.M. but our guests were invited to join us at 3 P.M. for cocktails. We asked a few to bring mixers and share their favorite drink. Our friend, Bill, came toting Ginger Beer for Moscow Mules. I had actually first heard of a Moscow Mule this past Spring. My company had a bowling outing and the alley we went to served Frozen Moscow Mules. Everyone at work talked about them for DAYS before the event so of course I had to try one.
Bill’s version was simple, served on the rocks, and with just three ingredients: Vodka, lime, and Ginger Beer. Start with a glass of ice. Add a shot of Vodka, a squeeze or two of fresh lime juice, and then top it off with Ginger Beer and a lime wedge. How simple is that?
So the next time you plan a party, or just cocktails with friends, you can’t go wrong with a Moscow Mule. Cheers!
