On Friday, March 3, 2017, for the annual South Beach Wine and Food Festival 2017, Smirnoff worked with one of Harlem’s top chef’s Chef JJ Johnson of Minton’s in Harlem at the event.
For the first ever National Moscow Mule Day, Smirnoff created the Harlem Mule inspired by NYC and along with Chef JJ’s yummy Oxtail Sliders!
Here’s the Harlem Mule recipe
- 1.5 oz Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
- 3/4 oz Ginger Syrup
- 3/4 oz Lemon juice
- 2 dash Whiskey bitters
- Float with 1/4 oz red wine
The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 by Smirnoff, and still adored by many. To celebrate the cocktail’s continued popularity, Smirnoff vodka has dubbed March 3, 2017 as the first official National Moscow Mule Day – giving everybody the chance to raise a copper mug and toast to the cocktail. March 3 (or 3-3) is significant as there were three people involved in the cocktail’s creation, three ingredients in The Original Mule and when turned counterclockwise the numbers become an M-M.
Harlem World Magazine asks that you drink, please drink responsibly.
