I know that when you think of Stan D’Arde you normally think of a martini lightly dirty, up, one olive, but even Stan understands that variety is the spice of life. That’s why today I want to introduce you to our most celebrated Standard, New York cocktail, The Penny Drop!
Based on a classic called The Moscow Mule, our version incorporates vodka, fresh lime juice and ginger beer and is served in a copper mug, which speaks directly to our penny covered floors at The Standard Grill. Actually, we use a few more secret ingredients than what we’ve shared, but we can’t give those out to you or else we’d be penny dropped like a hot rock.
BUT, what we have been able to do is share the recipe so you guys can make it home.
THE STANDARD GRILL’S PENNY DROP
2 oz. Vodka (Stan likes to substitute Tequila)
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Shake and strain into tall glass (or copper mug)
Top with Ginger Beer
Add Candied Ginger
There you have it. Drink responsibly my Stanny D’roppers!
