 . . .  run to the store and buy some ginger beer. We’re making the ultimate summer cocktail right now. It’s super refreshing. I swear! My husband is obsessed with new summer drink!

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!! Wouldn't all the light greens and pale yellows look fabulous!

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.
