July is definitely vacation month for the Kochmanski household. While on our recent trip to Mackinac Island, I discovered the French 75, and Chris was all about the Mackinac Mule. Personally, I think he liked the amazing copper cup it is served in, not to mention the spectacular view of the Straits of Mackinac, Round Island Lighthouse, and the constant stream of ferry boats. To be completely honest, you need to have a taste for ginger beer for this one. It is an easy refreshing drink to make. Enjoy!
1.5 oz vodka
.25 oz lime juice
4 oz ginger beer (you can also use ginger ale, but won’t have the same kick!)
Combine vodka and ginger beer in a copper mug or highball glass filled with ice. Add the lime juice, stir and garnish with a lime slice.
