Sunset Cocktail: Dead Man's Mule


1 oz. St. George Absinthe
1 oz. Orgeat
1/2 oz. Allspice Dram
1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
2 oz. + Crabbies Ginger Beer

Build first 4 ingredients over crushed ice in a Copper Mule Mug, stir or swizzle, top with more crushed ice and Ginger Beer.

It's about time I did a mule drink in a lovely copper mug. Good folks and family who read some of my posts last year took to heart when I said I didn't have any such mugs and presented some to me last Yule much to my delight. 

So far this year has started to put things in motion with the potential to actually swing upward. While things aren't perfect I have a bit of a lifeline to drag myself out of swamp I've let myself trudge through for the last few years. Without getting into any ugly details or personal baggage, I can use this picture to speak the thousand words that can be summed up with by saying that "More often than not, from now on, I'll be home for sunsets".
