In the late 1940s, two gentlemen got together and created a drink designed to sell their respective products: vodka and ginger beer. This is a simple cocktail, and is really refreshing. Just as when it was first invented, the Moscow Mule is still traditionally served in a chilled copper cup, which you can find pretty easily today.



  1. Mix the lime juice and vodka into the chilled cup. Fill the cup with ice cubes. Pour the ginger beer over the ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and a straw.
