The Summer Buck

Say what you will about the 1950’s, but one thing is for sure: people back then knew how to drink. Take the Vodka Buck, a.k.a. the Moscow Mule, a classic, dressed up here with orange and mint: Add two ounces of Vodka 14 and a generous squeeze of fresh orange to a highball glass two-thirds full of cold organic ginger beer and ice. Muddle in several leaves of fresh mint and stir. Garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of mint.
