Just a four minute walk or so from our house is a neighborhoodly-famous little biergarten called The Village Pub, for as long as I can remember they have hosted "Monday Night Mules", where you can drink the original Moscow Mule or any of it's cousins (The Glasgow Goat: Scotch and Ginger Ale, The Kentucky Thoroughbred: Bourbon and Ginger Ale, Mexican Burrow: Tequila and Ginger Ale, etc.) for half price all night long. So here: an homage.
2 oz vodka
1/2 oz lime juice
3 oz ginger beer
lime wedge for garnish
In a cocktail shaker three-quarters filled with ice, combine vodka and lime juice and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a mug, preferably copper, filled with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime.
