Moscow Mule
Moscow Mule

Moscow Mules (and Dark & Stormys) are a great drink for hot summer nights.  They are light and delicious and very refreshing.  Moscow Mules are traditionally served in a copper mug but they sweat a lot and we find that an insulated tumbler works better for us.  Lastly, if you substitute dark rum for the vodka, you have a Dark & Stormy.

1 oz vodka (or rum)
ginger beer (we like Barritt's)

Squeeze the juice from the lime into a 16 oz tumbler.  Drop the lime into the tumbler and cover with enough ice to fill the glass of the way to the top.  Add the vodka or rum and fill the glass to the top with ginger beer.  Stir.
