A traditional Moscow Mule is made with vodka, ginger beer and lime juice and served over crushed ice in a copper mug. Our sister newspaper tbt* has created a take on the mule for a local event happening Saturday: the whiskey-based, pony express-inspired tbt* Fast News Mule. They share the recipe below. The high-quality whiskey, spicy ginger beer, sweet cranberry syrup and tart lime work seamlessly together to create a fantastic drink perfect for a Florida winter.
You can find the tbt* Fast News Mule on Saturday at the Ritz Ybor's Cocktails & Couture fashion and art extravaganza. For more information, visit cocktailsxcouture.com.
