Moscow Mule Cocktail

Moscow Mule is a classic Russian cocktail made by blending Vodka and Ginger Beer. The original recipe was served in a Copper Mug filled with ice. During the 1940s, Vodka was not popular outside of Russia and Central Europe. After purchasing a popular Vodka, John Martin of G.F. Heublein and Bros. started to promote this colourless spirit outside of Europe by using the Moscow Mule.
