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.
