All About the Moscow Mule

All About the Moscow Mule

October 26, 2018

History

The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941, at a British pub in Los Angeles, called Cock’n’Bull. The pub had too much Smirnoff vodka in stock, which Americans weren’t interested in at the time, and an over order of ginger beer. Out of a necessity to clean out the cellar, the Moscow Mule was born. Over the next few years, with a creative marketing campaign, the Moscow Mule gained massive popularity and is credited for being the drink that made vodka a popular spirit in the United States.


Why copper mug?

Temperature – As soon as your drink hits the mug the copper cools, insulating your cocktail while you enjoy it. The handle keeps your hands away from the mugs sides, stopping your hands from transferring heat to the drink.
Taste – Cold copper mugs can increase the amount of bubbles in your drink, bringing out the fizz of your ginger beer. The lime juice also interacts with the mug, reducing the acidity and enhancing the tangy flavour.

It’s important to note that the FDA guidelines state that copper should not come into contact with acidic foods and drink, including Moscow Mules. Make sure your copper mugs are lined with another metal, like high grade nickel or stainless steel.
