Charles Steadman, master mixologist and Lantana Jacks Bar & Grill managing partner, breathes new life into the classic cocktail, Moscow Mule, with the Mule Kick, a refreshing sip for balmy South Florida.
- 2 oz. Tito's Handmade Vodka
- ½ oz. fresh lime juice
- 2 dashes of Fee Brothers' Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters
- Ginger beer
In a cocktail tin filled with ice, add vodka, lime juice, and two dashes of Fee Brothers’ Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters (“They’re slightly different than the Angostura bitters.”). Shake vigorously. Strain into a copper mug filled with ice, top with ginger beer, and garnish with a lime wedge to “adjust the sweetness.”
Charles Steadman has long been guiding Palm Beach's cocktail culture. A Untied States Bartenders Guild member, Steadman’s experiences behind the shaker have taken him across the globe, working on various gigs for Remy Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Marriott and Waldorf Astoria hotels as well as a milieu of restaurants and special events. And, as the longtime barman for The Breakers’ Echo, Steadman helped develop some of the savviest sips to come from the Island for more than a decade.
Now, as director of Luxe Libations, a full-service bar company concentrating in cocktail creation, costing, presentation and training for events and businesses, as well as managing partner of Lantana Jacks Bar & Grill, Steadman is using his personal cocktail style—a cross between classic and contemporary—to continuing to develop and enhance South Florida’s cocktail scene.
For a firsthand experience, “escape the day” with Steadman over at Lantana Jacks and sample a few of the sips that have made him one of the most sought-after and praised mixologists in town.
