For my Great Gatsby-themed wedding this year, I wanted to make sure my drink menu reflected my flair for cocktail creativity and flavors, so I designed an 1920s style list of fun libations for my guests. I didn’t want to overcomplicate the options, so I chose some new and popular drinks as well as some simple and classic ones, too.
To step up the presentation of this drink, I custom made some drink stirrers that displayed a variety of my wedding colors and then added some fun rhinestone bling and art deco washi tape to make it look even classier. If you want to step it the fancy factor another notch, you can order some custom art deco coasters with your wedding hashtag on it!
So, if you’re looking for a Moscow Mule recipe with a little less guilt, then this drink is for you. Simply switch out the full-calorie ginger beer with a diet ginger beer, like Bunderberg, then add some good quality vodka and fresh lime juice. I tried a Volstead vodka because it was pre-wedding gift from my sister that lives in Portland, Oregon and because I love the vintage style pink label. This drink ended up being a smashing success at our wedding but it can also be a great skinny spring cocktail option for you in general!

Place ice, vodka and fresh lime juice in a copper mule mug or bucket glass. Top with diet ginger beer, stir and garnish with a lime wheel and "cocktail bling".
