I have found my new favorite drink for the summer!
The Moscow Mule is nothing new, in fact it’s been around since the 1940’s. (Via Wikipedia:) The cocktail was invented in 1941 by John G. Martin of G.F. Heublein Brothers, Inc., an East Coast spirits and food distributor, and “Jack” Morgan, President of Cock ‘n’ Bull Products (which produced ginger beer) and proprietor of the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant onSunset Boulevard in Los Angeles popular with celebrities.
It’s definitely made it’s comeback!
Served in these great copper mugs, they are cold, refreshing and just plain delightful.
I know there are many ways to make a Moscow Mule, but I am going to share with you the way I was taught. It doesn’t require making any simple syrups like most, and only requires 3 ingredients, unless you count the ice, then it’s four!
I love my copper mug, but don’t let the lack of one keep you from giving this classic cocktail a try, it’s tastes just as good in a short cocktail glass.
Crushed Ice, Ginger Beer, vodka and half a lime is all it takes!
- 1 lime, cut in half
- 4 ounces vodka
- 1- 12 ounce ginger beer
- ice, preferably crushed
Fill a 16 ounce copper mug or small cocktail tumbler, with crushed ice.
Pour in 2 ounces of vodka.
Add half of the can of Ginger Beer (6 ounces) to the glass.
Squeeze half of the lime into the glass and drop it into the cup.
Give it a quick stir and Serve!
