this last summer i went to new orleans and discovered my favorite cocktail: a moscow mule. all summer i wanted to recreate it, but just got around to it this last wednesday. and it was the perfect ending to a long, not-so-great day at work.
the traditional recipe doesn't call for cucumber, but i love me a cucumber cocktail so i muddled some into the drink to start and followed the recipe from there.
hope a couple of cocktails are in your future this weekend! and if you haven't already, be sure to enter yesterday's giveaway.
