Something new for 2013...
Isabel of Family Foodie started the Sunday Supper Movement about a year ago. It's mission is to bring the families together around the table for a Sunday Supper each week, and to do so, she's assembled dozens of fellow food bloggers to create dishes that families can prepare around a common theme. Past themes have been Holiday Party Appetizers, Thanksgiving Leftovers and Foodie Bucket List dishes. Recently I joined the movement and this is my first recipe for it.
This week's theme is Retro Recipes. For it, I wanted to demonstrate the types of things I do. Namely: challenging food preparation and/or uncommon cooking methods for the home cook, and food that can easily be bought at the local supermarket made at home. In order to do this, I've updated a classic cocktail using the homemade ginger ale I published this past Friday, however the traditional recipe uses ginger beer, not ginger ale.
There are multiple sources for the same recipe, however I used the version found on epicurious.
2 ounces vodka
4 to 6 ounces ginger ale
2 or 3 ice cubes
1. Squeeze the lime into a Collins glass, then drop it in. Add 2 or 3 large ice cubes, then pour in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer. Serve with a stirring rod.
