    Default Moscow Mule

    Who likes them? Who has never tried them? Who has never even heard of them?

    Tried a sip of one at a super bowl party, and boy howdy, I wish I wasn't pregnant so I could have had more!

    It is vodka, lime juice and ginger beer mixed in a copper mug. I decided it is practically Gatorade since the ginger warms your stomach so you can drink it when hot, and healthy, since the lime juice will stave off scurvy

    I'm not generally a fan of vodka as a spirit, but I do like Moscow Mules. A really good ginger beer sets one apart IMO I like your justification for it being 'healthy', lol.

    I do like them--I can't drink more than one, but they've got a nice kick (mostly from the ginger, not the alcohol. Nothing like fresh ginger!)

    Try one mixed with this instead of the ginger beer. The mule shows you both his back hooves.

    I was introduced to these at a wedding in Wisconsin. It was like my tastebuds came alive and sang to the heavens. With that said, I of course drank way too many and could barely function to catch my flight the next day.

    I messed with the mule and I got the hooves.

    Definitely my cocktail of choice. I serve them annually for Fenway Bartholomule's birthday.

    Ha Ha - does FB drink it? or you?

    But why a copper mug - who has one of those?

    Mainly I drink fresh ginger with honey and lemon juice for a cough...

    The copper mug reacts with the lime juice from what I gather. The same ingredients mixed in a glass don't taste like an authentic Mule. They sell Moscow Mule mugs, but I'm thinking we can just go big and get a copper candy boiling vat and fill 'er up
