The drink “Moscow Mule” is an amazing 1950’s throwback cocktail, once again gaining popularity. First introduced in the US as a way to sell vodka, this drink is a refreshing cocktail especially perfect on a summer evening.
A Moscow Mule is best served in a traditional chilled copper mug (pictured). You need the mug, in my opinion, for the true Moscow Mule experience! Easy to make by even the most inexperienced mixologist, this cocktail is sure to refresh and delight.
