As the temperature continues to increase in the New York area, keeping our drinks cold has become a bit of an issue. This is especially true with the high humidity, which leaves our glasses perspiring (read: dripping everywhere). So, why not serve an especially summery cocktail in a stone mug?

What you’ll need:
2 oz vodka
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz club soda
1/2 tsp sugar in the raw
Fresh mint
Lime wheel
Ice, crushed

Muddle the mint at the bottom of a stone mug. Add the crushed ice.

Combine the vodka, lime juice, club soda, and sugar in a shaker. Shake well and strain into the mug. Garnish with the lime wheel and serve.
