THE CANVAS –
Summer is by far my favorite season! I can’t think of anything better than having dinner or cocktails out on the back porch on a warm summer night, listening to music and maybe even catching up with friends.
It’s even better when you can make your happy hour a little more special by whipping up some fun and refreshing cocktails for the evening. My go-to recipe has always been a Moscow Mule (especially after I got these darling copper mugs and shot glasses last year). The main make-or-break item in a Moscow Mule has to be the ginger beer! The sharp ginger taste that comes out in your drink makes all the difference in the world, so in my opinion it is always better to go quality on this treat. After I recently tried Barritt’s Ginger Beer (you can also see my pup trying to get a lick in haha), I knew that I was never going back! The pop of this ginger beer made the drink so fresh and tangy. Then you top that off with a splash of vodka, a touch of lime and some mint from the garden and you have a winning combination.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday and everyone have a happy and safe day!
