BOTW: Moscow Mule {and some poison oak}

It's Friday. 
It's been trying week. 
It's cocktail hour in my house. 

Normally I can handle almost anything thrown in my direction but coming home from my weekend away, I found my almost 7 year old had been exposed to poison oak.  Now, he's had poison oak one other time, but we realized it right away and scrubbed him up in the bath as soon as we were able to.....not the case this time.

Tip #1 when hunting with Dad:  DON'T pee in the woods!

Let's just say, something that should look like a small sausage link on a 7 year old.......should NOT look like a water balloon!

That's all I'm saying.

Now, on to this week's Best of the Web:
Moscow Mule ~ I had this drink for the first time ever in Carmel on the Farm Fresh Tour and fell in love with how refreshing it was!


1 ounce vodka
1 tsp. sugar syrup
Fresh lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 sprig fresh mint
1 slice of lime

In a copper mug, pour vodka over ice. Add sugar syrup and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.

This cocktail has a couple of my favorite things: lime and ginger. I really need to try it. I'll probably try it with gin, cause I'm crazy like that.
