What I'm Drinking: Moscow Mule

Beat the summertime heat with a refreshing Moscow Mule. 

Moscow Mule || A Less Processed Life

I have so much to talk about, but not enough time to write a full blog post. Let's see – we lost our power for over 24 hours last weekend due to storms that rolled through the area (that was fun!), we also put our new chicks out onto pasture last Sunday, and, perhaps most exciting, we brought home four new piglets to the farm on Saturday. They are the cutest. (You can judge their cuteness for yourself by following our farm on Instagram (@orangedogfarm) or on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/orangedogfarm/).

Plus work deadlines are insane, I've taken on a small freelance project, and did I mention all the farm chores? Long story short, things are crazy busy around here.

And it has been hot. Like, capital H-O-T hot. Luckily we seem to have a little break in the weather today and it's nice and cool this morning. But that doesn't mean I'll be putting away my copper mugs for Moscow mules anytime soon!

Moscow mules – made with fresh lime juice, ginger beer, and spiked with vodka, are a perfect afternoon cocktail on a hot summer's day. Which, wait, is today, right? Happy First Day of Summer!
