I chose to make a cocktail for Sharon’s birthday! No better way to ring in a new year than with refreshing drinks! Moscow Mules are one of my favorite drinks just because of how refreshing they are. Add in some cucumber for that summery spin and I think I’ve found my new favorite drink. It’s got this great green taste from both the cucumber and lime juice. I definitely recommend using fresh lime just for that extra zip.
So be sure to head over to What The Fork Food Blog and wish Sharon a happy birthday and enter to win the great birthday giveaway!
