Story goes the Moscow Mule was first invented during the 1940s in America, when the barman at the famous Cock'n'Bull, located on Hollywood's Sunset Strip wondered how the combination of ginger beer, vodka and lime juice would taste because they had these ingredients in excess quantities. It was a winner then then, and it still is now. It’s even better served traditionally in our handcrafted, copper-plated stainless steel mug with a brass handle.
