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 in combination 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 bounces frostily on your lips while the scent of mint and ginger fills your nostrils. With the first sip you can 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?

For no other drink, apart from the Moscow Mule, is a copper mug used. Why is that? The story behind it will surprise you: According to legend, the Moscow Mule was created during the 40s in the USA, more precisely in Los Angeles.

One evening the two gentlemen John G. Martin and John A. Morgan were sitting 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 had trouble getting rid of it too. In addition, Morgan's girlfriend had 2000 copper mugs 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 also partly responsible for the popularity of vodka in the USA.
