Cocktail Blog

Since 2011, Erik and I have been making and collecting cocktail recipes. Cocktails are a curious arena, at once indulgent yet diplomatic: the line between invigorating and toxic easily muddled. Not to mention historical: many of the classic date back to the late 1800s. 

To see if we have a drink recipe in our repertoire, search it's name or one of its main ingredients in the search bar below.

Moscow Mule

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.

Moscow Mule:

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.
