My Ohio Peach Mule!

Hey friends. Hasn’t summer in Cleveland just been gorgeous? Beautiful weather, perfect beach temps and the sunsets over Lake Erie, seriously stunning!

We are knee deep in packing our current home as we are getting ready to cross the river to explore the East side of town (I promise to post more on that soon.) I have been donating and organizing and wrapping and packing, it’s honestly a bunch of work. Fun work, but nonetheless a lot…enter my recent summer “cocktail-ing” and my Ohio Peach Mule.

The other night after a marathon packing session I decided to make myself and Mr. C the perfect summer cocktail; an Ohio Peach Mule. Very much like a traditional Moscow Mule with rum and ginger beer (I used Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer,) this drink has pureed peaches and limes mixed in with your rum and ginger beer. It is both refreshing and spicy…the perfect summer night drink. Give it a shot and see what you think.
