Happy Hour: The Moscow Mule

Jun 17, 2011

Alice + Olivia Bree Tie Dyed Dress (Net-a-Porter, $450)

This dress reminds me of a van Gogh painting.  So even though I’ve never embraced tie-dye, I’m willing to make an exception in this case.  And while some of you may be concerned that the one shoulder trend is dying, I see no indications of that.  Several Resort 2012 collections had one shoulder dresses, and as long as it’s the rights style for you in a gorgeous fabric, you’ll be able to wear it for years to come.

This weekend, my co-worker and I went to New York for a little big city relaxation.  On our first night, we decided to swing by the Crosby Street Hotel for some light appetizers and a Moscow Mule.  And it was delicious, definitely the kind of cocktail that quickly becomes addictive.  Luckily, it’s very easy to make at home.

The Moscow Mule

Ingredients

1 ounce vodka
1 tsp. sugar syrup
Fresh lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 sprig fresh mint
1 slice of lime

The recipe asks you to use a copper mug. but who has one of those lying around? So a highball will work just fine.

Pour vodka over ice. Add sugar syrup and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.

Happy Hour

    Incredible dress. I hate all things tie-dye, but it's easy to make an acception for this. Impeccably done, and it really looks more like a watercolor. Love.

    Oh, and the drink sounds fab, too!
