How to Make Your Own Moscow Mule
College is for crazy nights and even crazier concoctions (note: in this case, crazier does not always equal better). But here at Bachelor's Box, we've graduated from the vodka shots of yesteryear and moved on to a more refined beverage of choice: the Moscow Mule.
Originating more than 75 years ago, the Moscow Mule has climbed its way to the top shelf of pubs and clubs in the past few months. Not only is it a standout among vodka drinks with its combination of fizzy ginger beer and tangy lime flavours, but the Moscow Mule is also a standout in its appearance alone.
Served in a traditional copper mug, the Moscow Mule is sure to attract attention and capture any wandering eyes. It's not all for show, though; the copper cup serves a few different purposes
The most noticeable perk of using a copper vessel is, perhaps, the extra cool sensation that comes from the metal's tendency to quickly take on the chill of the beverage. It's not just super fast at capturing the cold temperature -- the copper is also highly effective at insulating the beverage to keep your drink cold for as long as it lasts.
Here's what you'll need to make your own Moscow Mule:
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 4 oz. Ginger Beer
- 1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- Wedge of Lime
- Simply syrup (optional)
- Copper Mug
How to make it happen:
Add ice to your copper mug, then pour vodka and lime juice over it. Top off with ginger beer and garnish with a fresh lime wedge. If you've a sweet tooth, add simple syrup to taste. And there you go -- the perfect drink.
If you're still in hot pursuit of a copper mug to complete this recipe, have no worries -- we've got you covered with this handcrafted copper mug for only €22.
Cheers to the weekend and to your new drink!
