Tuscan Mule Cocktail

So this is one of those drinks that I had to come up with at the last minute based on what I had in the ol’ liquor cabinet (which in my house is really just a liquor shelf. Boohoo. Send me booze.) Thanks to the internet, it’s no problem now to find SOME drink that SOMEone drank SOMEwhere that includes, or doesn’t include, whatever ingredients you have, or don’t have.

In this case I happened to have ginger ale (leftover from New Year’s Eve party) and Tuaca (leftover from a girl-trip to Houston to see some WRESTLING!) and key limes (leftover from a failed attempt at making something “classy”). A few moments on the internet and voila! I caught this little beaut of a recipe: Tuscan Mule. It’s a variation of a Moscow Mule which uses vodka in place of the Tuaca. It’s a seriously corny name, but Moscow Mule is pretty corny, too, and I have been informed by Real Russians that the drink is not from Moscow. Really? Go figure. So it’s a safe bet that the Tuscan Mule is not from Tuscany, either. Still, it’s sweet, light and easy to make. I bet your lady would like it.
