I was first introduced to the Moscow Mule a few summers back, and loved it for the crisp flavor served up in a chilled cooper cup. But I thought of it as a cocktail for warm nights, not winter nights. Wrong call! Coming off a long few weeks of work and entertaining — and the resulting nights filled with one too many glasses of wine — I found myself out and about again, and needing a change of pace; something really refreshing to drink. Lo and behold, Jimmy’s cocktail menu had the answer in black and white: a Mule. And not just your basic Moscow Mule, I had a choice of four varieties — Moscow, Colorado, Kentucky and Mezcal. Feeling a bit gun-shy, I stuck close to home with a Colorado Mule. No complaints there, but I might have to go back and broaden my horizons before winter’s over.
