So whats in a traditional Moscow Mule anyways? Great question & i’m glad you asked.

Vodka, ginger beer, lime & ice are the classic ingredients. Why “Moscow” well, thats because folks associate vodka with Russia.

Folks are loving Tito’s Handmade Vodka (from Austin, TX), so I figured I would feature this brand here. Cheers!

A popular & delish ginger brew is Reed’s. Did you know there is no alcohol in most ginger beer? News to me. It is a fermented drink & there are a few brands that do actually have alcohol, not this one.

Moscow Mules are classically served in copper mugs. I have those & love them. In these photos I wanted to show off the strawberry red. We would have lost that color in the copper.

So clear beer steins it is.
