Here are all the ingredients you will need (chair and flowers optional, but a definite plus).

  • cup of ice
  • 1 ginger beer (these come in different flavors and I enjoy the raspberry ginger one)
  • 1/2 shot of vodka
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1 or 2 slices of lime

I fill the cup about 3/4 of the way full of ice and then pour in a whole ginger beer. I’ll leave links to all these products at the end.

Next, I pour in the vodka. I’m not quite sure why this needs to be included, but all the recipes I’ve ever looked at had it in there, so I figured why not?! I added about half a shot, but I didn’t really measure it, just a guess and pour.

The lime juice comes next and again, I didn’t really measure it, but it was about a tablespoon. You can add more or less depending on how much you like the taste of lime. I’m not a huge fan, but this didn’t make the lime taste overwhelming.

For the finishing touch, I added a lime to the drink and as a decoration on the outside. Once I get towards the end of my drink, I like to squeeze one of these to add to the flavor.
