A Little Kick
Sometimes we need a creative kick for our projects. This week’s free Tuesday at the San Diego Museum of Art definitely helped. Who isn’t inspired by 20th century art within breathing distance?
Starlite, a local dining and drinking lounge, too, offers up inspiration by the glass. They make their own bitters (we must try that), and brandied cherries, and often mix their vodkas with things like cucumber and black pepper syrup.
One of my favorites, though, is their take on the Moscow Mule, called a Starlite Mule, served in a chilly copper cup. It’s light and refreshing, but somehow serious and straightforward.

Sometimes the glass really makes the drink. Here are some glasses we like:
|Moscow Mule (THH recipe)
Pour vodka over ice in a tin or copper mug or tall glass. Add lime, vanilla, and bitters and stir. Top off mug with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wheel.
CAUTION: Moscow Mules go down very easily. Unlike regular mules. So don’t go drinking and driving with them, ya?
