Copper MugsMADE BY COCKTAIL KINGDOM IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK
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 mugs sit with ice before mixing.
Here's our Moscow Mule recipe: Fill chilled mugs with fresh crushed ice, then add 2 oz Peace Vodka and 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice to each. Top up with ginger beer made with Pickett Brothers syrup. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge.
