Classic Moscow Mules

True Fact: this years most googled cocktail the moscow mule

The Moscow Mule is my favorite.

 It’s one of those cocktails that is so refreshing. You can drink it all night without feeling bloated and it tastes delicious! When I first started going out to bars when I was 21 I always ordered the same thing: cranberry vodka. I grew really bored of it, really fast. I’m a vodka girl by nature (Dad, are we like part russian or something?) I was out at a bar one night and a friend told me to try it. I remember I had to hand over my debit card and couldn’t retrieve it until I gave the empty copper mug back (they’re so pricy!) But I suppose the copper mug makes it a traditional moscow mule. It just doesn’t taste the same served in a glass.
