Nicky’s Moscow Mule
Moscow Mule isn’t just a delicious drink; it’s also the title of an episode of Orange is the New Black! In the episode, everyone in the prison gets sick but Nicky seems to be immune:
Nicky: I don’t believe in getting sick.
Piper: Wow…mind over mucus, huh?
Nicky: Yeah. That and I stockpile from commissary. I’m on a cough syrup cocktail that would make Lil Wayne vomit in his dreads.
This is a simple little recipe to make if you want a mixed drink quickly. The following are thrown into a glass in order: ice, vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer. An added mint sprig is optional.
This was really good. I love ginger beer, and honestly I think it goes with pretty much everything. Higher-end vodka and a juicier lime would have improved this to a 10/10.
Just throw everything into a glass and enjoy!
Ingredients include vodka, lime, and ginger beer. Vodka would be the most expensive item, but it’s available in mini-sized bottles to save on costs.
