Summer is a much needed break from the harsh Minnesota winter, but a mid-season heatwave can drive even the biggest summer fanatic to seek air conditioned relief. Don’t hide inside—this cocktail from Plymouth Liquors will chill you down.
This tasty drink is experiencing resurgence in popularity, says owner Jim Christiansen. Combine one part Stolichinaya Vodka with two parts Stoli’s Ginger Beer in a classic ice-filled copper mug. Squeeze desired amount of lime juice and garnish with a fresh-cut wedge. The spicy ginger has a bite, while the lime and carbonation keep it light. Package of Stoli vodka and ginger beer, $29.99.
