Last summer (not this past summer), YA and I had dinner with friends at their apartment in Uptown; they served us Moscow Mules. I enjoyed them quite a bit, in fact YA drove home!
YA must have remembered that night as she gave me a set of copper cups for Solstice. It’s a pretty set and includes a shot glass (which is good, since I didn’t have one) and little copper straws and even some coasters. I made a stop at the liquor store the next morning for ginger beer and vodka. Turns out I needed some vodka lessons. I ended up choosing a local brand – chosen mostly because I liked the label – but the gal at the store said it was a good brand, and good value for the price! Then I stopped at Kowalskis for limes.
I haven’t actually made a Moscow Mule yet – I have one more day of my wine advent calendar. The idea of wine and then vodka on the same day doesn’t seem like the best idea. Although the more I think about it, 2020 has been a year that cries out for all kinds of alcoholic consumption!
Do you have a favorite cocktail? Beverage? Have you been indulging more this year?
