Moscow Mule

 

Circa WWII

The Moscow mule is a spectacular mixed drink that is also incredibly simple. There are no big secrets to making a great Moscow mule—all you need are vodka, ginger beer, and Laffite’s Gold Margarita Mix (lime juice and simple syrup).

Traditionally, Moscow Mule is served in a copper mug. In addition to making a handsome drink, the mug keeps the cocktail well chilled, even on hot days. Some drinkers believe that it adds a nice flavor to the drink, too. A mug is not required and the drink is equally refreshing in a normal glass.

INGREDIENTS

2 oz Vodka

2 oz Laffite’s Gold Margarita Mix

Ginger Beer

Lime wedge, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

Mix vodka and margarita mix into a chilled copper mug (or regular cocktail glass will do). Add ice and top with Ginger Beer. Garnish with Lime Wheel.
