I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite cocktail. The Moscow Mule has a strong lime twist with a mild ginger beer background. The drink is made with a very simple combination of lime, vodka and ginger beer. This is the perfect drink when you want something refreshing and not overly sweet.
Have you tried ginger beer? I had never heard of it before now. Ginger beer is non alcoholic and it has a stronger ginger flavor than ginger ale. It is a fermented drink, making it less carbonated and less sweet than ginger ale as well. I absolutely love it.
