What is a Moscow Mule?
The Moscow Mule is one of the most popular drinks in the world. Classically it consists of vodka, ginger beer and lime juice, which makes it super easy to mix. This simplicity combined with its versatility is the reason for the success of the Moscow Mule. If you replace vodka with gin, you can easily get a London Mule without much effort.
What does a non-alcoholic Moscow Mule taste like?
A Moscow Mule is an experience: the ice-cold copper mug hits your lips frostily, while the scent of mint and ginger already hits your nose. With the first sip you feel the hot-cold ginger burn and a delicate acidity spreads. A Moscow Mule tastes like liquid winter on hot summer days!

Why do you serve a Moscow Mule in a copper mug?
No other drink, apart from the Moscow Mule, uses a copper mug. Why is that so? The story behind it will surprise you: According to legend, the Moscow Mule was created during the 1940s in the USA, more precisely in Los Angeles.
One evening two gentlemen, John G. Martin and John A. Morgan, sat together and both shared a similar fate. Martin had to market vodka for his company. Almost impossible at the time! Morgan launched a new ginger soda and also had trouble getting rid of it. In addition, Morgan's girlfriend had 2,000 copper cups in stock, which also couldn't be sold. Three problems and one solution: the Moscow Mule! It is said to have been invented that night and is therefore partly responsible for the popularity of vodka in the USA.
