Day Time Sipping

Can we give mother nature a high-five for the fabulous weather we had here this past weekend.  The perfect weather for lunch on a deck overlooking the water has me craving the upcoming warm days ahead (please tell me they are close ahead!).

While I am prepping my beach bag with  beach towels (Target hit it out of the park with this one) and bikinis, I thought what better time than now to try out some new recipes to take to the beach house for the hot summer days in the Outer Banks.

Today’s recipe is the quintessential Moscow Mule!  Grab a lime and a cooper mug and try one for yourself.

Ingredients {for one mug full}:

1 can ginger beer (not ginger ale… there is a difference, I googled it)

1/2 lime

2 oz of vodka (a shot glass full)

3 strawberries

lots of ice


1. Grab a cooper mug (so you look fancy), muddle your strawberries (which means mash the strawberries enough to get the juice out, but not enough to turn them to paste), add vodka, ginger beer and squeeze the lime juice into the mug.

2. Lightly stir.  Garnish with lime slice and strawberry!

Now take your tasty new drink, in your fancy new cup and cheers!
