Cocktail Time! The Milan Mule

On our way home from Maine, we stopped at a luscious Italian restaurant in Portsmouth, New Hampshire called Pesce. It was a beautiful summer day, around 80 degrees, with a baby blue sky and light, wispy clouds. Sitting outside, we enjoyed a cocktail with our amazing lunch and it transported us back to our times in Italy. They called the cocktail "The Milan Mule," and we successfully replicated it at home the other day. It's so very cool and refreshing, you can't beat it on a warm summer's evening. Here's our version.

1/2 cup limoncello
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup ginger beer (we used Gosling's brand)

Put all ingredients in a glass over ice and give a quick stir. Garnish with basil and enjoy.

I could down several glasses of this libation! Lemon and ginger, a match made in heaven.

Bon appetit!
