Moscow Mule Mug
So I haven't been using this mug for its intended purpose but it sounds delicious. I like vodka drinks. The reason it is served in a copper mug is to keep the cocktail cold. I really got it because I thought it was pretty but now I want to try one. 5 stars.
A Moscow Mule, also known as a Vodka buck, is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. It is usually served in a copper mug.
Ingredients: 4 oz Ginger beer, 1 1/2 oz Vodka, 1/6 oz Lime juice
Preparation: Combine vodka and ginger beer in a copper mug or highball glass filled with ice. Add lime juice. Stir gently and garnish with a lime slice.
Served: On the rocks; poured over ice.
Drinkware: Copper mug or highball glass
Why does a Moscow Mule have to be in a copper cup?
The most scientific benefit of using copper moscow mule mugs is temperature. For centuries, the best drinkers have known that chilled drinks in copper cups offer an extra-cool sensation, due to the metal quickly taking on the icy temperature of the cocktail.
