Ali Hedin | Mandarin Mule for Chinese New Year

Yesterday I shared a really really fast Chinese Chicken Wrap recipe that's super delicious.  You'll love it.  You'll love it even better with a quirky little cocktail inspired by Chinese New Year. 

Clearly, this is really un-authentic.  But that's not what I'm going for.  I like to celebrate.  I like to have a reason to celebrate and I think Chinese New Year is an awesome reason to celebrate.  Who doesn't love good Chinese food and a cocktail?  

Inspired by the sweet and spicy flavors in Chinese cuisine, I added a little Mandarin vodka to a regular Moscow Mule transforming it to a little something that everyone will love!
