Origin of the Moscow Mule
The Moscow Mule is a cocktail of vodka, ginger beer and lime, traditionally served in a copper mug. These first became wildly popular in the 1940's, after being invented by John Martin of Smirnoff Vodka and Jack Morgan of the Cock 'n' Bull Tavern. Fueled by recent celebrity endorsements, this refreshing and easy to make cocktail has once again become one of America's favorite libations.
Benefits of Old Dutch Moscow Mule Mugs
The copper in a Moscow Mule mug is essential because of its temperature conductivity. Chilled beverages in copper mugs offer a long-lasting cooling sensation, as the metal rapidly takes on the cold temperature of the liquid. This chilling effect keeps your drinks cooler for longer!
