From Russia with Love

There are a few things every four years that cause business as usual to come to a halt in The Blind Pig household.  You may or may not be aware that on Thursday, the 2018 World Cup commenced.  Since then, soccer, or football as the rest of the world calls it, has been running on our TV almost 24/7.  Craig and Blind Piglet #2 are huge soccer fans, and don’t like to miss out on any of the action.  In honor of the World Cup, we are going to feature some cocktails with some World Cup flavor over the next few weeks.

Since the World Cup is hosted by Russia this year, our first idea was to feature a Moscow Mule.  However, we feel that has probably already been done, so we made a little twist on the Moscow Mule to create the Watermelon Mule.  Whether you are a soccer fan, or your feet have never touched the pitch, the Watermelon Mule is a beverage that can be enjoyed by all.

The Watermelon Mule is a great summer drink, and is easy, tasty and fresh.  Add 1.5 ounces of Seagram’s Watermelon Vodka to a rocks glass or mule mug.  Fill with ice.  Top off with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime juice.  Garnish with a wedge of watermelon and a lime.
