Smirnoff Moscow Mule

Category

Season / Occasion
Spring, Summer

This iconic drink combines vodka, ginger beer, lime juice and ice, served in a unique copper mug.

History

Despite its name, the Moscow Mule actually hails from Los Angeles, California. It was invented in 1941 by a man named John Martin whose company had just acquired Smirnoff, and bar owner Jack Morgan, who had a surplus of ginger beer in his bar the Cock ‘n’ Bull. They put the two together and with the addition of lime juice, a star was born. The Moscow Mule is often served in a copper mug, which takes on the temperature of the cold liquid within. Alternatively, a highball glass filled with ice works well, too.
