Moscow Mules

My dad and stepmom Denise came to visit us this past weekend for the first time since we moved here. It was a really nice time! We did some sight seeing, walked around our beautiful neighborhood in Pasadena, made some wonderful breakfasts, watched football and took an afternoon trip to Laguna!
It was the perfect day in Laguna! 80 degrees in November! All the while, our hometown of Odessa was getting some snow! It was sad to see our family go, I hope they will be back before another 5 years go by!

Moscow Mules are my favorite cocktail! I love how refreshing they are. My 3B, Emily, bought me these copper mugs for my birthday so I can make them at home!

Moscow Mule
1/4 cup Vodka
1 Tbsp Lime Juice
1/2 cup Ginger Beer
garnish with mint
not needed, but it is fun to serve the traditional copper mug!
Squeeze lime juice into mug of ice. Pour in vodka and then slowly pour in ginger beer.
Very easy, but oh so delicious! You can replace vodka for rum and it is now a Dark and Stormy!
Other variations I have had have used cucumber flavored vodka to make them, yum!
