Around our apartment it’s officially Mule Monday! Hey, why not? We’ll certainly take any excuse to enjoy one of our favorite cocktails, and Mondays definitely need something to get excited about!
We came up with the idea of Mule Monday last fall during a season of The Bachelor. Not only did Marc choose to spend the rest of his life with me, but that also means he chose to take on my trashy TV shows for the rest of his life. As we settled in each Monday night to let the judgements begin we realized this show really needs to be watched with alcohol. That’s when we began making Moscow Mules every time we watched The Bachelor.
The only problem was that The Bachelor doesn’t run all year long (actually that’s a really good thing…). In order to keep our tradition going Mule Monday was born.
As cocktails go, this one is pretty darn easy. It doesn’t require many ingredients and you can make it in just a couple of minutes. There are many different versions of Mules, but we like to keep it simple.
2 Copper Mugs
2 shots vodka
12 oz. bottle of Ginger Beer
~Fill copper mugs about halfway with ice.
~Add one shot of Vodka to each mug. We prefer Grey Goose, but it’s entirely up to you. If Marc is making the drinks he will add one and a half shots to each mug.
~Squeeze half a lime into each mug.
~Top with Ginger Beer. After trying many different brands, we prefer Bundaberg. I’m not the biggest ginger fan, and Bundaberg has just the right amount of tanginess and blends well in the cocktail.
~Stir well and serve immediately. Garnish with a slice of lime and/or mint leaves to make it more festive.
Happy Mule Monday!
