I’m back in the office after being out for nearly two weeks (!!).  Was it fun while it lasted?  Absolutely.  Am I wishing that I was slightly more productive over break?  Yes.

Alas.  I think we could all use a drink after the work day is through.Cranberry Vanilla Moscow Mule | A Nerd Cooks

You’ll need (makes 1 cocktail):

  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry vanilla simple syrup (see instructions below*)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • ginger beer

Add the vodka, simple syrup, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake until very cold and strain into a glass with ice (preferably a copper mug).  Top with ginger beer and enjoy!

*Make the simple syrup according to this method, but throw in 1 cup of fresh cranberries and a splash of vanilla extract along with the sugar and water.
