½ oz. Fresh-Squeezed Lime Juice
3 oz. Ginger Ale
In a shaker-- combine vodka, lime juice, ginger ale, and ice. Shake; use care when shaking this Valley Ho due to carbonation. Garnish with a lime wedge and cherry, serve in a chilled martini glass. Use this liquid courage to fake a sweet accent and introduce yourself to other "out of town-ers". Hey, it might buy your next round.
