I love a good Moscow Mule. . . it is light and refreshing!

Moscow Mules go with pretty much everything! I think it’s because they are light and refreshing enough to blend well with any appetizers. AND does the copper mug make a difference in the flavor?  I absolutely believe it does! Taste a Moscow Mule in a glassware and then one in a copper mug and you’ll agree! There’s something about the reaction of the lime with copper in the mug that gives it an extra special tang! Ohhhhh baby. . . love them and the copper mugs they’re served in!   

Blackberry Lime Moscow Mules Recipe and a look back at the history of the Moscow Mule! 

The perfect combination of vodka and ginger beer, housed in a solid copper mug that kept the drink cold and enhanced its flavor and aroma, resulting in a cocktail that America would fawn over for the next century and beyond. The Moscow mule is often served in a copper mug. The popularity of this drinking vessel is attributable to Martin, who went around the United States to sell Smirnoff vodka and popularize the Moscow mule. According to a 1942 Insider Hollywood article, the Moscow mule was most popular in Los Angeles, where it originated.

A few tips for picking party beverages and more recipe inspiration:

Picking beverages for your gathering can be fun but daunting at times! I like to have a selection of red and white wines, some sparkling water with lemon or limes, and a festive mixed beverage as an option too. If younger children are going to be apart of the event then I’ll make sure to have some juice or soda on hand and it’s always a good idea to have some permanent markers handy for everyone to mark their glasses. . . it washes right off with hot water and soap!
