Copper Polish…The Moscow Mule Elevated

Moscow Mule Mugs and recipes

We like our summer to last through September…maybe into October. If you’re anything like us, we’re guessing you do too. Our suggestion for an extended summer…a signature cocktail for the last parties of the season or an impressive hostess gift to bring along. A Moscow Mule solves both dilemmas; a stylish vessel and a great tasting send-off to the summer season.

Other than the fact that Vodka comes from Russia, we’re not really sure why this drink is called a Moscow Mule (unless you make them the way we like them…with a little extra kick!).  Either way, what we are sure of is that we have one of the nicest Moscow Mule Mugs we’ve ever seen.

Beautiful, heavy gauge copper is hand-hammered by an international artists cooperative with its roots in Santa Clara del Cobre, a village located high in the Sierra Madres of Southwestern Mexico and a stateside workshop in Austin, Texas. The tradition of Mexican copper work originated over 1000 years ago.  Obviously, we think these Master copper artisans make the best Moscow Mule mug around.

As a bonus, when these mugs are packed with ice, they take on a super chill that keeps any beverage icy cold…Moscow Mules are only the beginning, how about an ice cold beer, maybe a tart, sweet lemonade.  Whatever your potion, this is an outstanding vessel for any cold beverage.

Have we talked about the monogram? Could there be a better way to embellish and elevate the copper mug?  We don’t think so.  We can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be bowled over by the gift of a pair (or two) of our beautiful, hand hammered, copper vessels.  Is it shallow to admit that we think the world would be a better, kinder place if only everyone would take a pause for a nice cold beverage served up in one of our beautiful copper mugs. One can only hope…

Monogrammed copper mugs, sold in pairs…throw two in a basket with a bottle of vodka, a handful of fresh limes and a couple of bottles of hand crafted ginger beer and our favorite Moscow Mule recipe.  You’ll be everyone’s favorite gift giver. Please allow 3 weeks for monogramming and delivery.

Moscow Mule Recipe:

  • Fill your copper mug with ice
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • 1 ½ oz vodka
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • Stir and garnish with lime wedge

*For tasty variations, mix in some muddled fruit or try a different spirit like Bourbon for a Tennessee Mule, Rum for a Dark & Stormy, or Tequila and muddled jalapeño for a Mexican Mule.
