National Vodka Day: Moscow Mule

When I found out that this holiday existed, I was psyched. I mean…talk about a great reason to be festive ;). So I was looking to try out a new cocktail, and this one caught my eye. A friend also suggested it, so I figured it was worth a shot. It was really tasty! I love ginger beer, and the sourness from the lime goes so well with it. This is a holiday I’ll need to celebrate every year!
