Moscow Mules are some of the best cocktails to have this time of year. They’re so easy to make yet the ginger beer makes the take more complex with a sweet bite to it.
I wanted to make something a little bit different – I’ve been yearning to make some infused vodka since I used to do it a little more and my new run club seems to have a knack for making Kahlua and other amazing spirits. I went to my cabinet and played around with some of the different Stash Tea and landed on Peach. I took some Fuzzy’s vodka and poured it into a small container with the tea bag and left it overnight.
For this lovely drink, I used Uncle Waithley’s Ginger Beer made by Karl Franz Williams, Caribbean-American mixologist, restaurateur and owner of Harlem’s 67 Orange Street and New Haven’s Anchor Spa. They recently expanded Uncle Waithley’s Vincy Brew, Ginger Beer with Scotch Bonnet Pepper. A non-alcoholic small batch ginger beer, Uncle Waithley’s is a refreshing beverage and an ideal mixer to add great ginger flavor to cocktails and mocktails. It’s made with fresh, flavorful, all-natural ingredients (not extracts) that are balanced in the way only a true mixologist could. Uncle Waithley’s is uniquely enhanced with Scotch Bonnet, a pepper prized throughout the Caribbean and Africa, for its heat and flavor, giving the drink a spicy finish. Uncle Waithley’s is the only authentic Caribbean ginger beer with Scotch Bonnet on the market today.
