When the temps begin to move towards sweater weather, my cocktail menu tends to move towards one of my favorite drinks; the Moscow Mule.  Though I have just a slight twist that I believe makes the classic mule just a tad better.  I add mint.  By combing tart ginger beer, fresh mint and lime juice all stirred up in a copper mug; well there’s truly nothing better.  And with the growing popularity of Moscow Mules finding all the necessities is easier than ever.  But I do have an insider tip when mixing up this libation.  Don’t chop or tear the mint, inside lay the leaves flat in the palm of your hand and clap your hands together.  By clapping down on the mint you’re releasing it’s flavor more than by chopping or even muddling.  You can do this with your mint garnish as well.  Cheers!  truly, MKR
