Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule is a simple, easy-drinking cocktail composed of just three ingredients–vodka, ginger beer and lime. The drink was born in the 1940s when a couple men peddling vodka and ginger beer joined the two together on a whim. The result was this refreshing potion that quickly gained a foothold among the drinking public, partly for the Moscow Mule’s signature taste, but also for its iconic glassware–the copper mug. See the recipe below to make one for yourself, then check out these other Moscow Mules for variations on the classic.
