What do you do when one of your tribe tells your they are moving to the complete opposite side of the country? You make a BFF cocktail of coarse! My friend Tina is one of the rare ones. She is just an incredible person that any words I would write here wouldn’t do justice to the magnitude of her spectacularness! Her husband is in the military and they were recently stationed to another state. As my fellow foodie, before she left I wanted to make sure I documented us making something in the kitchen together as that is one of the cornerstones of our friendship. Naturally a cocktail was the first thing to come to mind. I bought special glasses for us (info on these following the recipe) each to make our drink in while we are far away from each other (temporarily). We made this with one of Tina’s favorite liquors, gin, but feel free to use vodka or tequila, both of which would taste amazing! As this is a play on a Moscow Mule we decided to call it the Backpacking Burro.
