A Moscow Mule was invented to get rid of vodka back in the 1800's because it wasn't a popular liquor (yet). It is usually served in a copper mug with crushed ice and mint leaves. Ginger beer and lemon juice are added to the mint over ice along with the vodka. Instant condensation will occur.

Ultimately I did eat a bunch of these donut holes but my plan to recreate malasadas from Hawaii with rhubarb filling failed pretty miserably. And by failed miserably, I mean failed deliciously because in the kitchen, that's how we roll.
Soon we'll be baking with avocados and talking about what the moon should be made out of....
