This week I’m making the original Moscow Mule, a drink created by a marketing team with a desperate need to sell more Vodka in the 1940’s. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a tasty drink! It’s a fantastic drink! The Moscow Mule is a delightfully refreshing combination of vodka and spicy ginger beer and there are definitely times when nothing else will do. The copper mug has no real historical precedent other than more marketing but hey, it looks great! Giving this drink its very own unique serving vessel is a big part of what sets it apart and lead to it’s enduring popularity so kudos to the inventors. In my version I elevate the drink by crafting my own ginger beer in the mug by combining homemade ginger syrup and seltzer, I’ve provided the links to those recipes above if you want to follow in my steps exactly but feel free to swap my syurp + seltzer combo in favor of a good ginger beer if you’re so inclined. Without further rambling I proudly present The Only Moscow Mule You Need!
