1 ounce lime juice
2 ounces vodka
4 to 6 ounces ginger beer
Pour lime juice into copper mug. Add two or three large ice cubes, then pour
in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer. Serve with a stirring rod and garnish with a lime wedge.
It’s about temperature. The copper mug is highly effective at insulating the cold temperature of the liquid inside. This is especially good during summer, when warm temperatures, along with our own body heat, can melt ice cubes quickly. The drink stays cold, keeping the vodka smooth, and the ginger beer spicy.
Have you tried soapstone “ice” cubes? Use the beautiful squares of stone to cool your drinks instead of ice. Just put them in the freezer, remove when needed, and allow them to cool your drinks without watering it down.
