Cocktail du jour: Russian Meteor

It's cocktail time here Chez C&G. After a very long back-from-vacation week filled with miserable weather, we need a drink. This is my Russian version of a Dark & Stormy. In reality it's called a Moscow Mule but I think dark & stormy sounds so much better. Substituting vanilla vodka for the regular vodka adds in some sweetness and balances out the spiciness of the ginger beer.

With the addition of the vanilla vodka we needed a new name for it. Little C&G was obsessed with the Russian meteor that fell a couple of weeks ago and wouldn't stop talking about it. So our cocktail hour conversation centered around meteors versus asteroids, and my nameless cocktail took on a new identity.

The C&G Russian Meteor:
2 oz Stoli Vanilla Vodka
Fill glass with Ginger Beer & ice
Squeeze of lime
Stir & enjoy!
