“This is our best-selling cocktail by a pretty good margin,” Newton says. “It’s essentially a Moscow Mule/Pimm’s Cup variation. The liquor cost is less than $1, and it takes about 7 seconds to make one from a batch.”
- 1 1/2 L. vodka
- 1 1/2 L. Zwack Unicum
- 1 L. simple syrup
- 64 dashes Angostura Bitters
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice
- 1 1/2 oz. ginger beer
- lemon wedge
Combine vodka, Zwack, simple syrup, and bitters; reserve. Refrigerate. To make single cocktail, in a Collins glass combine 2 oz. batch with lemon juice and ginger beer. Fill glass with ice, garnish with lemon wedge, add straw, and serve.
