Moscow Mule





This is another great ginger cocktail that's quite the staple especially in these weird rainy months. I'm sure you've probably tried it before, but I'll put it down on hot wax, anyway. It has a bit of a remix kinda feel to it.

1.5 oz Vodka
Ginger Beer
Fresh Simple Syrup
Limes
Mint



Herbal Storm Cocktail





If you're familiar with the Dark and Stormy, I had the pleasure of trying a twist on it. However, this rum I had a pleasure of having is called Bayou. It's a rum (sugarcane-based) from Louisiana. If you know your history, Louisiana and rum go hand and hand. You can take a look at one of my older posts regarding top Mardi Gras drinks to see what's there. At any rate, here is the recipe.

1 1/2 oz of Bayou Rum
1 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz of Ginger Syrup

Simply amazing, refreshing, and has that nice ginger kick to it that goes straight to the veins.
