A Twist on the Classic Moscow Mule...the Chocolate Mule!

Chocolate proper copper mugs!

Kimber and I are huge fans of a well-made Moscow Mule...AND we are huge fans of 360 Double Chocolate Vodka!  Naturally, we  experimented and came up with...drumroll, please....the Chocolate Mule!  
Crisp and refreshing, chocolaty, gingery and ice cold, this is almost the perfect cocktail.  Do you think the "mule" part might be inspired by the kick of the vodka?!  You've got to try one of these and we think you'll be glad you did.  Here's the recipe:

Chocolate Mule

In a cocktail shaker:
  • 2 shots 360 Double chocolate vodka
  • juice of half a lime
Fill the tin 3/4 of the way with ice, put on the top and shake until the tin is icy cold.  Strain the liquid into a chilled copper mug for the classic presentation or a chilled tall glass.  Add fresh ice and fill the mug or glass with 
  • good Jamaican ginger beer
Stir gently and garnish with a wheel of lime.

Variation:  To make the classic Moscow Mule version, use regular vodka instead of the chocolate variety and garnish with a pretty sprig of mint.

So refreshing!
