Moscow Mule

There’s a saying that good managers take more than their share of the blame, and less than their share of the credit. I’m on a team of hard-working, under-celebrated managers and was looking for a way to treat them every so often. We now celebrate the end of the quarter with hand-shaken cocktails, and this combination of vodka, lime, and ginger beer was one of the first recipes.

And mint grows like a weed, anywhere! A back-door herb bed, a flower box in a sunny window…it just grows and grows!”
