Where the hell have I been? Well. It’s a very long story. Let’s just say that the end of last year, and 2018 thus far has been anything but smooth sailing for my family and myself. We’re actually only cautiously attempting to breathe somewhat normally now. I will elaborate on that sometime soon because why not? But obviously and preferably not in what’s supposed to be a long overdue shoutout post.
I’m all too aware we’re not the only ones going through stuff lately. In these turbulent times, one needs all the comfort and possibly booze one can get. If one partakes in booze, that is. To be enjoyed in these pretty copper mugs, maybe filled with delicious Kombucha Mule (second picture from the top) and other cocktails of choice, be it boozy or alcohol-free.
They are also great as a food-safe, nickel-lined vessel for various morning shakes or smoothies. Hot beverages can also be served in there but I’m going to state the painfully obvious: no microwaving these babies. By the way, if you make the Kombucha Mule, you should note that I needed to more than double the recipe as it is written in order to fill the mug to the top. Not a problem in this house.
Or you know, you could also treat yourself to some Caramel and Root Beer Floats (first picture from the top). I used Virgil’s root beer and Halo Top dairy-free sea salt caramel ice cream. And a kitchen blow torch to char the cinnamon stick, instead of the gas burner. The recipe will fill the mug perfectly: hooray!
When you’re done imbibing (or gulping down your non-alcoholic beverage), simply wash your copper mug in warm, soapy water. Or ask your significant other to do it. Especially if you’ve already been the one to prepare the drinks.
