This weekend is supposed to be a hot one! If anyone needs me, I’ll be by the pool. Sitting by the pool and soaking up the sun is just what I need after a long week at work (and especially now that my broken foot is pool approved!) But whats a pool party without the refreshing libations?? This weekend I’ll be the one with the drink tray!
By now I’m sure you know that I’m all about the moscow mules. Last summer I hopped on the moscow mule train and I can’t get enough of them – they really are so refreshing and perfect for summer! Remember my post from last year on how to make the perfect moscow mule? Well, they’re not really easy to take on-the-go and make outside of the kitchen so you can bet I found a way to prep them for the pool this summer.
Step 1: Grab a carafe… mix your ginger beer & lime juice with some ice cubes (but not too many because they’ll melt pretty quickly).
Step 2: Prep your gear… grab your copper mugs, straws, ice, and limes (optional for the pool).
Step 3: Grab your favorite tray for an appealing presentation! This would also be great if you want to fill your mugs with ice before hand like I did.
Step 4: Don’t forget your liquor… vodka for an original mule or you can make it a gin mule with your favorite gin. Also you can grab a shot glass for measuring if you would like!
Step 5: Mix and Enjoy! Since you’ve already mixed your ginger beer and lime juice, you need equal parts liquor and juice to make the perfect drink!
