Moscow Mule

Moscow Mule, the Vodka-Based Cocktail

The classic version of Moscow Mule consists of vodka and ginger beer, served in a copper mug. Nowadays, there are tons of variations to the cocktail, so it increases the choices of ingredients. This cocktail is usually served in a copper mug to give a traditional look. Plus, some believe that the taste and flavor of the drink enhance in a copper mug and gives a cooling sensation. The material of these mugs helps keep the temperature, aroma, and flavor of the drink almost invariable.
