If you do one this this weekend . . .
. . . run to the store and buy some ginger beer. We’re making the ultimate summer cocktail right now. It’s super refreshing. I swear.
I'm talking about some refreshing moscow mules!! Love the combination of the mint, lime and booze ... I could actually get inspired and set the table decor around this color combination!!
A couple of weeks ago we were on a family vacation and my brother wanted to make moscow mules . . . so my sister-in-law set out to locate some copper mugs and all the fixins'. Moscow Mules were served and my husband was hooked! When we returned home I was on a mission to locate all the fixins' myself. We were having Date Night + Moscow Mules + a movie.
I don't know about you, but a moscow mule sounds like the perfect way to end the day!!
Here is the recipe:
Moscow Mules Cocktail Recipe
Moscow Mules Cocktail Recipe
* 4½ ounces premium vodka
* 1 ounce of lime juice
* 8 ounces of ginger beer
* slice or two of lime
* about 4-5 fresh spearmint sprigs (chopped if you prefer smaller mint pieces in your cocktail)
Directions: Fill your copper mug with ice cubes. Add the vodka and lime juice and stir. Top with the ginger beer. Garnish with mint sprigs and if you like crystallized ginger. Makes 2 drinks.
Cheers to a fabulous summer!
So what is your summer cocktail of choice going to be?
While you are out at the store purchasing all the ingredients for the best new summer drink I have introduced to you for our date night . . . don't forget to head to Target for all the appropriate snacks needed for date night!

In addition, use the Target Cartwheel app on your smartphone to receive percentage discounts on select items. Target sales cycles run Sunday through Saturday.
I received a fabulous The Longest Ride Date Night Bag to watch The Longest Ride with my hubbie. I had to hide The Longest Ride bag full of snacks from Target because it was filled with all my children's favorite snacks. My smallest little one is in love with the white cheddar seasoning for her microwave popcorn. I literally have to hide this seasoning from her or she will take a spoon and eat it right out of the container (no joke)!
What could be better for date night snacks than microwave popcorn, Chex Mix (Traditional is the only way to go) ad the special treat of cheddar seasoning and movie theater butter? A perfect evening for us. I enjoyed the movie so much that I invited all my neighborhood gal pals over the following weekend and we had a GNO(BUT IN) and watched The Longest Ride and finished off all my snacks!
I'm going on vacation in October and can't wait to read the book, The Choice, by Nicolas Sparks. I love nothing better than a really good book on the beach! Maybe they can make me a Mocow Mule too!
