Vodka • Sweet
No-Blender Frozen Moscow Mule

No copper mug here, just a plastic sandwich baggie. This easy, no-blender, frozen Moscow Mule is made with both ginger beer and ginger syrup, for an extra zippy hit of spice. Even if you don’t consider yourself a member of the Moscow Mule cult, this frosty cocktail will hit the spot at any time of day—it makes a particularly great brunch cocktail when the a.m. heat is already unbearable.
