    1 oz of Ginger beer? Those proportions for the mix are not right. 2 to 1 on the lime is right, but your supposed to top that off with ginger beer in a high ball and more then one oz of it for sure.

    I saw Ginger Beer at the corner store and bought some since it reminded me of Mom. She used a copper mug, I don't have one. Shot of vodka, some ice, filled up with ginger beer and about 3 slices of lime squeezed on in. I have very bad memories of Rose's lime. Delightfully refreshing - my 2 friends totally agreed!!
