Stay chill with these throwback copper mugs modeled after the original 1946 Moscow Mule mug! So sleek. So shiny. Instantly frosty. But why copper? As with most dedicated cocktail glasses, this one was designed with temperature and taste in mind. A Moscow Mule traditionally mixes vodka, ginger beer and fresh lime, served over ice. Any icy drink served in a copper mug quickly frosts the metal for instant chill factor, insulating the drink and keeping everything cool for the duration of your sip session. The handle keeps your body heat from messing with this perfectly controlled cool.
Cocktail experts will also say that the copper enhances the taste of spirits and citrus, and keeps carbonated elements extra fizzy. Sounds like a win-win to us.

Chilling out is easy! Just be sure to pre-chill as many elements as possible – chill the vodka, keep ginger beer in the fridge, let the copper mugs sit with ice before mixing.
