Moscow Mule cocktail a 1950’s throwback


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.


Moscow Mule



  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 1Tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup ginger beer
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 1 slice of lime


Chill the copper mug in your freezer until its cold to the touch.

In the chilled copper mug pour vodka over ice. Add sugar syrup and lime juice.

Top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.
