I'd put it as #2 best weekday. Ranking days of the week is a thing, right?
All the ingredients can technically be altered to suit your tastes, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a recipe? These aren't guidelines, people (they are guidelines, I can't control you). However, these measurements result in my personal favorite flavor combination - just the right amount of sourness and spice. I like using a not-so-sweet beer too.
Grapefruit Moscow Mules
4 oz fresh grapefruit juice
4 oz fresh lime juice
2 1" long strips fresh, peeled ginger
A few ice cubes
6 oz ginger beer (gluten free if needed)
2 oz vodka (gluten free if needed)
Pour grapefruit and lime juices into a large glass. Add fresh ginger and muddle to release the flavor. You may remove the ginger now if you wish, or keep it in the glass for a stronger flavor. Add a few ice cubes, then add the ginger beer and vodka. Stir, garnish with a wedge of lime or slice of ginger, and serve.
- The amount of lime juice you add can vary depending on personal taste. With these measurements you'll have a tart drink, which is what I personally prefer, but if you want it less sour, simply add less lime juice.
