A Moscow Mule for Father's Day


Moscow Mule for Fathers Day Recipe
Alright, so Dad (undoubtedly one of the hardest do gift shop for) already has a bevy of beer steins, whisky stones and flasks but does he (or that hostess with the mostess) have one of these coppery beautes? Probably not which is why it's prime gifting material this year. Keep reading on where to get them for Father's Day and the vodka based cocktail recipe to go with it:

THE RECIPE >

If a copper tankard and a mug had a baby you would have what we have here... a genuine Moscow Mule mug, in this case by Pure Copper. Lately these have been exploding in popularity which is interesting since the corresponding drink of the same name and mug was all the rage in the 1940's. According to my mixology guru Mittie Hellmich, who's book would be perfect with a set of these mugs, the Moscow Mule was the cocktail that made vodka cool for the masses. Teaming up with a Hollywood restaurateur, importer John Martin combined ginger beer with a twist of lime and the Moscow Mule was born. Originally the Moscow Mule mugs had kicking mules engraved on them but all the ones I've found today are plain and quite striking.

The drink itself packs a kick but is also pretty simple to make:
