a Valentine special in honor of Sochi

a Russian cocktail (that isn't brown and won't give you conjunctivitis - poor Bob Costas). 
The Moscow Mule
1 part vodka
2 parts ginger beer
squeeze in wedge of lime and serve over ice
We enjoyed these tasty and refreshing beverages on Valentine's Day. I pulled off a Pioneer Women dinner - filet oscar, asparagus with tarragon hollandaise & a wild rice mushroom pilaf.

I followed her directions to a tee on the filet dish, but for the rice recipe, I used wild rice instead of white and lengthened the simmer time to about 40 minutes.
This dinner was delicious, and although there were a lot of moving parts, it all came together well. Happy Valentine's Day weekend!
