Starting out our summer here – we have such gorgeous sunny weather that I thought about starting the summer with a great cocktail I tried in San Diego last year. We had it for lunch in a restaurant called the Fin or something like that near the shore. This cocktail is a version of Moscow Mule that is a popular cocktail nowadays, and that we have had time and time again.
The special je ne sais quoi of the San Diego version is that this cocktail is made with Chinese 5 Spice. The spice really adds a lot to the flavor, and puts it on another level in my opinion!
- 2 shots of sweet vermouth
- 1 shot of sake
- ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon of Chinese Five Spice
- juice of 1 lime
- ginger beer
- Mix shots of vermouth, sake, Chinese Five Spice and squeezed lime juice with a cocktail muddler.
- Add ice to taste
- Add ginger beer to top the cocktail in your Moscow Mule mug.
This cocktail was made using a lot of items I received for reviews, and most importantly the Moscow Mule mug by the Kicking Mule – here is where to get it. #TheKickingMule This is the only way in my opinion to enjoy a Moscow Mule – using an authentic proper mug for it!
And now, to start yo’ll off on the right track this summer, presenting to you a giveaway – hope you enjoy it!
