Monday, Monday. I hope everyone is staying warm on this particularly cold day. Today I want to share a cocktail recipe that will make you forget the impending blizzard outside and take you to the warm beaches of Montauk. This cocktail is the perfect marriage of a Moscow Mule and Prosecco- swoon! So crisp and so refreshing!
The Ingredients: (for two cocktails)
2 shots of vodka
4 cubes of cane sugar
1 shot of fresh lime juice
3 sprigs of fresh mint (plus extra to garnish)
1 bottle of Prosecco
The How To:
1. Add cane sugar, lime juice and mint into a shaker.
2. Muddle the ingredients in bottom of the shaker until thoroughly crushed and the sugar is mostly dissolved.
3. Add vodka and ice to above the level of the liquid and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.
4. Strain mixture into two tumblers containing large ice cubes and fill with Prosecco. Garnish with fresh mint.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was relaxing, mostly because I pinched a nerve in my neck, so it was full of R&R.
