Sweet “Tee” Mule

"In the last few years, this sweet gem has made the rounds on the golf circuit. Don’t sweat the sweet tea vodka. It’s as easy to make as a 2-inch putt. "

6 blackberries

2 ounces simple syrup

¼ cup sugar

2 ounces sweet tea vodka

2 ounces ginger beer

1 lime (juice enough for a couple squeezes)

To get them wet, dunk each blackberry into the simple syrup, then roll in the sugar before spearing 3 of the big ones on golf tees or on the garnish stick of choice. Grab a chilled copper mug and pour in the sweet tea vodka, ginger beer, and two solid squeezes of lime. Top up with crushed ice, drop in the remaining 3 sugar-coated berries, and stir. More berries may be desired, or you can muddle a few in the simple syrup for more blackberry flavor.

For sweet tea vodka: Steep 10 black tea bags in a bottle of vodka for up to 12 hours, depending on how strong you desire. Or do a cup of vodka with 2 bags in about 20 minutes. Sweeten to taste with simple syrup. Bourbon works well as a sweet tea too.
