Wickman House, a fine-dining destination at the tip of Wisconsin’s Door County peninsula, serves as many Moscow Mules today as it does the state’s beloved brandy old-fashioneds. The Wickman recipe is the classic formula: vodka and lime juice topped with ginger beer and served over ice in a copper mug.
- Serves: 1 person
- 2ounces vodka
- ½ounce fresh lime juice
- 3ounces ginger beer, preferably Fever Tree
- Lime wedge, for garnish
Step 1In a cocktail shaker three-quarters filled with ice, combine vodka and lime juice and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a mug, preferably copper, filled with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with lime.
