After some long talks about cocktails during a recent trip to Santa Barbara, I have been dying to use arugula in a drink. I know you’re thinking, arugula, what? Why? Well, honestly, I’m not really sure why. It sounded fresh, a little spicy as far as greens go and not too sweet. If you’ve had the pleasure of seeing me out on the town in the past few months, then you are well aware of how much I love Moscow mules. These ginger beer infused vodka cocktails are served ice cold, often times in copper mugs. I love the tickle they give on the back of my throat.
Originally, I had the thought to use Gin and tonic for the base of this drink but then I went with Tito’s Vodka and ginger beer. I subbed a mason jar for the copper mug, added some arugula, lemon and club soda for extra fizz and called it a day.
I’m hoping to include more cocktails and fun summer drinks on Food Fetish, any suggestions on what you want to see?
