Mixer & Mingle Fridays: Cuke Mules

My daddy once taught me you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything.

Ok, so it wasn't actually my dad, it was Aaron Tippin but still. Country boys know what's up.

It was brought to my attention that I've become the biggest advocate of cucumber vodka. (Cuke for president!) I can't help it. It's like the weird ginger kid on the playground that no one wants to play with. It's like the yellow crayon of my world. So, I invited it to come mingle in my cocktails last year, and then I accidentally went and fell in love.

Originally it was Effen Cucumber Vodka + Lemonade. But then this year, Moscow Mules became the IT drink, and one local eatery slipped some cuke vodka into my copper mug and sent me into a tailspin. Heels over head doesn't even describe this drink for me.

Sadly, I place things like paying my electric bill as a higher priority than buying $20 copper mugs for my home, and my cocktail suffers (argue all you want, the mug for sure makes it taste better) but a mason jar full of Effen Cuke, ginger beer and lime makes my speakers go boom boom.

Try it. You'll like it. Everyone's doing it.

I'm not a fan of vodka but I may want to try this. It also sounds like something the bf would love. Good call.
