This post-prohibition classic is experiencing a massive resurgence, quickly becoming one of the most popular vodka cocktails again. As one of the cocktails that drove the original vodka craze, it owns a spotlight in the modern history of the spirit. The simple, refreshing and bright flavors of the cocktail make it extremely versatile. The key is a high quality ginger beer, with real spice and a little kick that has nothing to do with the syrupy and cloying ginger ale the modern drinker has become accustomed to.
Serve over ice, garnish with fresh mint sprig or lime wheel. If you have a copper mug handy, it is the traditional vessel for this tipple.
Ingredients in a Charles Joly Moscow Mule: Vodka, ginger beer, pure cane sugar and lime.
