The Real Housewife of Santa Monica

Moscow Mule

I really owe Trish a heee-uge thank you for this cocktail which she had in my hand about 10 minutes after entering her house in Denver. It was HOT that day (as it still is…) and she made this gingery bev in a large mug.

Try this drink. It’s simple, has only 3 ingredients and is such a treat!

You need:

1/2 oz lime juice
2 oz vodka
4 oz ginger beer
ice cubes

Ok. Including the ice, that’s 4 ingredients. Sue me!

Pour your lime juice into a glass.

Drop in a few ice cubes, add the vodka, then fill up the rest of your glass with ginger beer. Stir!

Highball glasses are recommended but of course we ain’t formal like that (read: we don’t have highball glasses). That’s why ours were strong.

Can you use ginger ale in place of the ginger beer?
Certainly! You can use your old dishwater if you want to.

I found ginger beer at Ralph’s in the “fancy soda” part of the soda aisle.

Yummmmmmm we sure did enjoy these!

That lime looks downright lonesome there.
