Spice things up with the drink of summer
Tuesday May 11th, 2021
Make this kicked-up twist on a Moscow mule your house drink this summer. Jalapeño-spiked lemonade and fiery ginger beer collude to make this warm-weather sipper spicy (but not alarmingly so) and sweet.
Feel free to swap out the ginger beer for ginger ale if you want a milder flavour. Serve well chilled in copper mugs with straws over crushed ice.
