A Moscow Mule is a popular cocktail that originated in the United States during the 1940s. It’s known for its distinctive serving presentation in a copper mug, which not only keeps the drink cold but also enhances its flavor and experience.

The traditional Moscow Mule recipe includes vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a lime wedge or slice. The combination of these ingredients creates a refreshing, slightly spicy, and tangy drink that’s perfect for sipping on a hot day or as a lively addition to social gatherings. The copper mug, aside from its thermal conductivity, has become a signature of the Moscow Mule, making it instantly recognizable.
