Ingredients

  • crushed ice
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • 4 slices fresh ginger optional
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 sprig fresh mint

Instructions

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and add the vodka and lime juice as well as two of the ginger slices (if desired). Shake well and strain into a copper mug. If you don't have a copper mug, you can use a highball glass. Add the ice from the shaker to the mug.
  • Pour in the ginger beer, add a straw, lime wedge and remaining ginger slices as garnish. Slap the sprig of mint between your hands and place in the drink next to the straw.

Notes
