One quick post before the Forth of July celebrations begin… As you may have guessed by now, one of my favorite summertime cocktails is the Moscow Mule. Love em’ but I wanted to mix things up a bit for our weekend neighborhood picnic and Independence Day party. So I came up with this beauty and I’m calling it the Government Mule. It will beat you like a “Government Mule” if you drink too many and I’m listening to one of my favorite bands, “Gov’t Mule” while writing this! Ha! It all makes sense right?
On a side note, “Mules” are always served in these cool copper mugs because they make your drink super cold. Since you probably don’t have time to run out and get any, a red solo cup or even a beer mug would work just fine! FYI, I picked up my mugs at TJ Maxx/Home Goods for $5 a mug, my liquor store sells the same dang ones for $20 a mug. So shop around! Finally, if your not into liquor, omit it, it’s really refreshing without it too!
Have a happy Forth of July, count your blessings, be safe, don’t get too “lit” up and don’t drink and drive! ENJOY!
