2 ounces vodka
1 tablespoon (½ ounce) lime juice
4 ounces ginger beer
Fill a copper mug with ice.
Add vodka and lime juice.
Fill the glass to the top with ginger beer.
Give the drink a quick stir.
Garnish if desired, then serve cold.
Copper mugs are more than a tradition for this drink. They were originally used because the metal chills faster and holds the temperature longer which makes it a perfect summer drink!
