First, there was National Margarita Day. Now, there’s National Moscow Mule Day!! We can get behind this, most def. Oh, MMD is March 3rd. And because it would be un-American to not celebrate a drinking holiday… Well, here’s a mule that’s not a complete ass. See what we did there? Mules are half donkey, half horse…
Just drink this.
Traditional Moscow Mule
5 oz Ginger Beer
1.5 oz Premium Vodka
0.5 oz lime juice
Fill a highball glass or copper mug with ice. Pour in your favorite vodka and squeeze in the lime juice, leaving the lime shell in the glass. Then pour in the Ginger Beer and gently stir.
Did you miss the holiday on February 22nd? Not the “I-dumped-my-significant other-after-I-got-the-Valentine’s-gifts-I-wanted” holiday. The 22nd was National Margarita Day!
Why don’t we have this day off? Seriously. Perhaps you couldn’t indulge because it was a weekday and adulting, blah, blah, bah. Our Crack Wise-dom has us thinking we should margarita more now through Cinco de Mayo. That’s, what—a good two-ish solid months of perfecting our Cinco de Drinko game?
Here’s a recipe to get your started.
Peach Sriracha Margarita
1.5 oz. Island Oasis Aseptic Peach
1 oz. Island Oasis Margarita Mix
2.5 oz water (for dilution)
1 oz. Tequila (or more)
1/2 t. Sriracha
Shake ingredients with ice: strain over clean ice and serve.
*don’t know if this one’s gonna burn—in and out
Okay. We see you, Yankee Candle. There was a time we may have dropped a lot of cash on your good-smelling things. We still love you, but we’re grown now. And... you know, bills and stuff.
But… we still turn to you to mood-set our homestead. We love you even more now that you’re offering up drink recipes with your candle expertise.
Cheers yourself every day—or maybe every day you have breakfast—with this sinfully wonderful sip that tastes as good as the candle smells.
