Beer? Good. Vodka? Great. Grapefruit and mint? Perfect. This fun, refreshing play on a Moscow mule can be enjoyed anytime of the year. For those who are unaware, grapefruit is the state fruit of Texas. Thus, it seemed only appropriate that this version was named after the Lone Star State. I love to sip on this while I prepare a spread of appetizers and finger-foods while watching some Sunday football.
