Trader Joe’s opened a store not far from my office and I’m quite pleased about it. “Quite Pleased” translates into jumping up and down and going there every single day the first week they were open! I am Trader Joe’s target customer. They seriously came up with the concept for their stores with me in mind.
Anyway, I got some of their wonderful ginger beer and so just had to make a Moscow Mule – easiest drink ever!
Just pour a shot or so of vodka into a glass.
Squeeze in a dash of lime and then drop the lime in the glass.
Add ice and ginger beer to fill.
This kinda of sort of made my Tuesday night.
A whiskey distillery in town, High West does their Moscow Mule using whiskey which would probably make it a more wintery type cocktail. That’s definitely on my winter drinking list.
Do you have a winter drinking list? No? Huh, I thought everyone had a winter drinking list.

I like how you think! We definitely have seasonal cocktails, our favorite winter cocktail is the Manhattan. (PS, I have a Trader Joe’s walking distance from my office – too dangerous!)

So happy for you! After we moved last year, we drive a 1/2 hrs. to Trader Joe, but we make it, most weeks:) I leave you now with your Ginger Beer!

Just this morning the news station revealed that homes near a Trader Joes were worth more…I’m too far from one but hubby likes to make the drive occasionally♪

A couple months ago, I came across a recipe for Moscow Mule so I went out and bought Ginger Beer. The Husband and I liked the ginger beer so much, we drank it all up before making the Moscow Mule. lol

I love cocktails to start the weekend! And I’ve never been in a Trader Joe’s yet but it’s great to have a store where they just get your taste and needs! 😀

They really “get” me there!
