The Gin-Gin Mule: A Ginned-Up Alternative to the Moscow Mule

I love a good Moscow Mule. But then, who doesn't? It's more interesting than your average vodka drink (i.e., ridiculous flavored vodka and soda or 7-Up), but accessible enough for mainstream mass appeal.

Though the Moscow Mule is refreshing and delicious, it is are, after a while, like a pop song repeating endlessly on the radio: It just sort of blends into itself until you barely notice what's happening. I find myself wanting a drink with a little something . . . extra. A dash or two of je ne sais quoi, if you will. That's where one of my heroes of modern bartending, Audrey Saunders, comes in.
