DOTW: Siggi’s Mule

I love a good Mule in the summer, especially because the copper mugs stay so nice and cold. There are so many variations to the mules, but I wanted a brand new one. So I looked at cocktail menus in Europe, and how they master new libations. I came across this cocktail, and I love the ingredients, and how they add and switch to upgrade this classic drink. Lime, cucumber and mint and undoubtedly cooling, and in this weather, nothing can be more appropriate!

What you’ll need:

In a martini shaker, muddle one slice of cucumber, mint, and one slice of lime. Add ice and gin, shake well. Add ice to the copper mug, and strain contents of the shaker into the cup. Top off with ginger beer. Garnish with lime, cucumber and/or mint leaf.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
