Moscow Mule Copper Mug Set (4)
If you've never had a Moscow Mule, you're missing out on an excellent, simple drink that completely hits the spot during summertime. Basically a Dark N Stormy with vodka instead of dark rum, this combination of vodka, ginger beer and lime juice is like a high five of deliciousness for your tongue.
For those of you who are familiar with Moscow Mules, here are a couple things you might not know - 1) a Mule (also known as a "Buck") is any variation of cocktail using ginger beer, citrus juice and a base spirit, and 2) Moscow Mules are traditionally served in a copper mug instead of a glass. Most bars these days serve the cocktails in pint glasses because they already have them around, and because the interesting-looking copper mugs have a tendency to grow legs and walk out the door.
If you're a fan of this delicious drink you can get your own copper mugs for a bit of an investment. Do they make the cocktail better? Some say they do, because of some science-y mumbo jumbo called oxidation. But we just think the mugs look badass, really.
