When the weather drops below freezing and you don’t want to go outside to get your favorite drink at your local bar, why not create the perfect drink in the comfort of your home instead? If you don’t already know, the Moscow Mule has been on the rise for the majority of 2015. It’s a great mixture of lime, vodka and whole lot of ginger beer. So delicious.

So grab your significant other or bestie, sit in front of the fire and sip on some delicious gin Mules until, you know, it actually starts to feel warm outside.
