Pina Colada Moscow Mule For Happy Hour
I’m meeting some friends tonight for happy hour. I love when I get the opportunity to go out for drinks. I typically have wine or cocktails like this Gold Rush Iced Tea recipe or something like Summer Sangria when I am at home. Going out for drinks is exciting because I can sample with new cocktails!
My girlfriends and I will often order fun, often “girly” cocktails that are colorful and slightly sweet when we go out for drinks. We will then proceed to talk non-stop. We will cover all the topics from work, school, our kids, our homes, our husbands, food, fashion and whatever else pops in our heads. That is just what girls do.
I imagine a men’s only happy hour is very different. I imagine the guys would talk about sports and outdoorsy things like fishing, biking or whatever else they are into. I imagine they would drink beer and that there wouldn’t be nearly as much talking going on as their female counterparts. In fact, I imagine a lot of dead air. I cannot prove any of this as I never witnessed my husband have drinks with friends. When I am present it is all couples and when couples are together, the women do all the talking.
About this Pina Colada Moscow Mule
This Moscow mule is embarrassingly simple. Only 4 ingredients are necessary. One ingredient is coconut rum, the other is pina colada mix, you need a lime and finally, you need a ginger beer (it isn’t a Moscow mule without that good, old ginger beer). Garnish your mule with lime wedges and sliced pineapple. Then you have to invite your girlfriends over for a happy hour! There is probably so much to catch up on.
