Apparently, March 3 was Moscow Mule Day… and somehow I missed it. It’s a shame, because I absolutely love a refreshing Moscow Mule! If you are unfamiliar with the drink, the craze actually began in the 1950s. The Moscow Mule is made with vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and a slice of lime. And, a major resurgence began when a Moscow Mule Mug Kit was included as part of Oprah Winfrey’s Favorite Things list.
But, it’s really the presentation that makes the Moscow Mule so special. Traditionally, the drink is served in a copper mug. Finding the right copper mug, however, is actually harder than it sounds.
Some copper mugs have stainless-steel, nickel, or lacquer inner coatings. But, the copper mug from Kitchen Classique, pictured, is made from 100% copper. This is crucial because copper retains cold better than other materials and ensure the proper citric acid reaction for maximum taste.
Not only does the Kitchen Classique copper mug provide the optimum taste experience, it’s also just gorgeous. This mug is handcrafted and features a beautiful hand-hammered design – so stylish! The 16 oz. capacity is the perfect size to hold your drink and ice cubes.
And, the Kitchen Classique copper mug is incredibly well made. Each handle is seamlessly welded to the mug’s exterior for sturdiness (no tacky rivets or flimsy handles).
Plus, Kitchen Classique even offers an extra bonus – a unique, pure copper shot glass! The shot glass ensures that you can measure out and create your Moscow Mule with 100% copper for a pure tasting experience. And, this stylish shot glass will be a beautiful addition to your bar. Visit Kitchen Classique on Amazon to see the entire line.
