Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week we'll bring you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Moscow Mule at The Rokerji
Hectic days happen and sometimes all we really need to solve them are a simple cocktail in a discreet and cozy environment. The Rokerji's classic Moscow Mule is the sigh of uncomplicated relief that comes in a cool copper mug and leaves us with no choice but to save the day's drama for mañana.
2 oz. Russian Standard Vodka
4 oz. Fever Tree Ginger Beer
Place ice, vodka and Fever Tree Ginger Beer in a copper mug. Stir lightly with a spoon and don't dare complicate things with a straw. Garnish with fresh lime and a deep breath in and out. When we said uncomplicated, we meant it.
