Coaster 2 Coaster: The Florida Cocktail

Hey y’all! I’m Erin from

, a lifestyle blog all about Northeast Florida, and I’m so excited to bring you this Florida inspired cocktail.

Florida is known for producing sweet and juicy oranges. I wanted to put a Florida touch on one of my favorite cocktails, the Moscow Mule, as well as a local spin.

I created my cocktail using St. Augustine Distillery vodka, a super smooth spirit that’s distilled right here on the First Coast using 100% Florida-farmed sugar cane. Of course, any good vodka will do but this is one of my favorites.

Topped off with fresh squeezed Florida orange juice and Fever-Tree ginger beer, this drink is fruity and refreshing. The Sunshine State in a glass!
