Crazy About ... Cocktails - Sochi Mule

sochimule.jpg

At Little Yellow Couch, we are busy being" Crazy About ... "a lot of things this month - including cocktails!  We set my mixologist husband, Jason, to the task of creating a cocktail that would be fitting of our theme.  Inspired by the Olympics, he created the Sochi Mule - a handcrafted take on the Moscow Mule.  This cocktail features a mint ginger simple syrup that in our opinion will take the Gold!  In fact, we are "Crazy About ..." it!  

Cheers!
Karen June & Jason
