Saw a bottle of Reed's cherry ginger beer in the store and got an idea to experiment with the old Moscow Mule recipe.
So I made up a regular Moscow Mule, with vodka and lime juice, only substituted the cherry ginger beer for regular ginger bear. I guess you'd call it a Red Moscow Mule (which makes sense, politically). Anyway, it was like a Moscow Mule, only a lot sweeter and frankly pretty sacharine and dumbed down. I tasted like a lot of the sugary vodka atrocities you see in the trendy bars theses days, and I felt guilty for having made it at all, and wanted to take a shower.
So there it is. Don't try it at home.
