Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule is a refreshing cocktail to serve when entertaining during the warmer months. The combination pairs particularly well with Smoked Chicken, Sweet Chili-Lime Ribs With Honey-Ginger Barbecue Sauce & Sweet Chili-Lime Smoked Pork Shoulder. While the Moscow Mule formula is simple enough– vodka, spicy ginger beer & lime juice– there’s much debate regarding it’s origins. However one thing that is for certain is that it’s the perfect summer sipper. Although Moscow Mules are typically served in a copper mug, it can be prepared & divided into shot glasses & offered as tasting portions with other beverages. Tasting portions give guests the opportunity to sample them even when personal preferences may range from from craft beer to wine. Accompany them with appetizers to promote lively conversation. Learn how to make Classic Moscow Mule Shooters & plan to serve them throughout the warm weather months when casual gatherings are in order.

How To Juice Fresh Limes

Limes can be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. If the zest is desired, take care of that task first by running the outer portion over a microplane grater, then slice the limes in half for juicing. Extracting it is simple when the correct tool is used.

The Technique

 When fresh lime juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lime press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds, if any, will be left behind. Simply remove the used lime halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
