This is the cocktail that taught Americans to drink vodka in the 1940’s, and they haven’t stopped since! We love the strong, clean ginger flavor of Fever Tree Ginger Beer, but we encourage you to find your favorite!
Fill tall glass with ice. Press lime into glass, and drop spent lime half into glass. Add vodka, and top with ginger beer. Stir quickly with bar spoon. Garnish with a sprig of mint, or a lime wheel (or both).
