Moscow Mule Cocktails are typically served in a copper mug. This one is served in a highball. Simple refreshing cocktail is made with ginger beer, vodka and lime. Enjoy!
Moscow Mule Cocktail
Over the summer Alan surprised me with a weekend getaway to Mendicino, which is a Northern California coastal town, and where I had my very first Moscow Mule Cocktail!
Mendocino is a good 4 hour drive from where we are in Pacific Grove.
We took the scenic route, which ended up being a longer road trip that was unnoticeable because the ocean view was so pretty!
As we were driving, I was tying to imagine where we would end up and I was certain that we were heading to San Francisco. I was sooo wrong!
Have you seen the movie “Same Time Next Year” it’s an oldie staring Alan Aldo and Ellen Burstyn.
That movie is basically about a couple that meet by chance at a hotel restaurant and continue to meet at the same place for over 20 years!
It’s a romantic comedy with lot of funny moments that always makes us laugh, which is why we watch the movie over and over again.
Never mind the fact that the couple was having an AFFAIR for all those years!!
Just a minor detail…
Moscow Mule At Heritage House Resort
The movie was filmed in the late 70’s at an operating inn called Heritage Inn. Alan (my husband, not Mr. Aldo) did some investigating and learned the resort went into foreclosure.
We heard that it was in bad shape for year and had been sold and renamed The Heritage House Resort.
In the final stages of renovations, Alan thought we should check it out!
Wow! I was so surprised. We’ve traveled quite a bit over the years and stayed in some nice places (oh, and some very scary places too!), but the Heritage House Resort is just fantastic!
The hotel is comfortable with some old fashioned charm and located on the most beautiful coastal grounds I have ever seen.
Along the coast there are hiking areas and private beach coves that you would never find on your own.
There were so many details Alan planned during that weekend; picked the perfect room with a gorgeous view, restaurants to try, and once there we unplugged all electronics.
What Is In A Moscow Mule?
We settled in and ordered drinks at the bar. On the menu was a speciality drink list and I picked a Moscow Mule.
What the heck is that? Apparently it’s been around for awhile, and the drink is making the popular cocktail list once again.
It’s has very simple ingredients; vodka, ginger beer and lime juice. That’s it!
The ginger beer gives it a little spicy bite, and at first I wasn’t sure what I was tasting, but it grew on me quickly, so I was anxious to recreate it at home!
