Introduction: Moscow Mint-Mule

Greetings comrade! Do you have too much Wodka lying around? Da? Sounds like a good problem to have if you ask me!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

You shall require:
  • Mint
  • Lime
  • Lime Juice
  • Vodka (we used Wodka Vodka)
  • Ginger Beer (not ale, BEER)
  • a Shaker
  • a Muddler
  • a Mug
  • grumpy looking girlfriend

Step 2: Combine Liquids

Stir together 2oz Vodka with 1oz lime juice if you're creating this cocktail for one. I trust you have the imagination to extrapolate from there if you have guests.

Step 3: The Mint

Tear up about five mint leaves and muddle it about in the lime/vodka mix.

Step 4: Pour, Garnish, and Enjoy Comrade!

Shake the mint/vodka/lime together in ice. Pour into 8oz mugs and add ginger beer. Garnish with lime and a mint stem with some leaves on it. This beverage is traditionally served in a copper mug. Surprisingly the metallic mug thing adds an interesting bit of flavor. Unfortunately, I didn't have one lying around like everyone else apparently does.

    What about the grumpy looking girlfriend you listed in the things you'll need section? Was hoping for some before and after photos! :-)
