Spicy Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe || Drink on Fleek

Spicy Moscow Mule Recipe I'm going to start this Spicy Moscow Mule recipe post by explaining why I don't own an authentic Moscow Mule mug. Well, you see, I'm still waiting to find one for less than $8. I understand that the cost of copper is simply quite expensive, but I'm not ready to give up on the hunt. I've set a goal for myself and gosh darn it, I still think I'm going to find one for $8 or less. 

..... and when I do..... jokes on y'all! Muahahahahahhahahahahaah

Ok, glad we've cleared that up. Instead, I have the most appropriate, adorable little cups that my long-time bestie (and college roomie!) Magen sent me for Christmas. Seeing as a Moscow Mule's primary ingredient is Vodka, I can't think of a better cup to use!

Well, that is until I find a Moscow Mule mug for $8 or less.

A couple of weekends ago, CB, my girlfriends and I had a Saturday Funday. We started at one of my favorite Saturday afternoon activities, The Deep Ellum Brewery Tour. For $15 you get three (very strong) beers and three solid hours of good convo and fun with your friends. After the brewery, we hit up a few different bars. At each place we stopped, my girlfriends both asked if the bartender could make them a spicy Moscow Mule. Most everyone's reaction was to offer them a Mexican Mule, which is made with tequila instead of vodka. 

My brain of course ding ding ding-ed and promised them that if they came over one day the following week, I'd find out how to make a real Spicy Moscow Mule for them. Hence, the inspiration for today's drink! 

The Spicy Moscow Mule

|| Ingredients || 

2oz Vodka

1 Jalapeño, sliced into wheels
(you can also use a Habanero if you're braver than I am)

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Ginger beer

|| Directions || 

Muddle two (one if you don't want a ton of heat) jalapeño wheels in the bottom of your cocktail glass-- or in your Moscow Mule mug if you've sprung for the real thing. Fill your glass with crushed ice, then add your vodka and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a single jalapeño and lime wheel.
