Happy Hour: Lemon Ginger Mule
If you haven't tried one, believe me, it's life-changing.
If you want to make the traditional one you need vodka, lime juice and ginger beer. This one has an extra spice kick from the freshly grated ginger and the lemon juice is a nice twist.
It's just perfect. I wish you could take a sip from your computer (or phone) screen right now so you'd know I wasn't lying to you. Lucky for you, they're super simple to make so you can mix yourself one. It's Friday after all.
LEMON GINGER MULE (makes 2 drinks)
1/2 inch grated, fresh ginger
3 oz. vodka
lemon wedges for garnish
1. Cut lemon into wedges, then place in a martini shaker.
2. Muddle the lemon with the grated ginger and vodka then shake with ice.
3. Strain into 2 glasses filled with ice.
4. Top off with ginger beer (not ginger ale) and garnish with a lemon wedge.
