Moscow Mule

Moscow Mule // take a megabite

ThisĀ song makes me dance, this picture makes me happy, this dude makes me swoon, and this drink reminds me of going to New York, and Christmas Eve and Green Dot Stables. I love it!

Moscow Mule // take a megabite

And there’s something so special about drinking this out of a copper mug. And there’s something even more special about making your own ginger beer. And well, I’d like to whip these up and cheers with a hottie! I’d like to sip these and dance around, and then go on a winter walk, arms linked because of the ice. The moral of the story is: this drink makes me feel like adventuring.

So, go ahead! Whip this up! Gift it! Keep it! Serve it! Drink it! Toast it! Chug it! Just know that it’s dreamy, and will probably make you want to dance in your upper flat in shoes even though it’s totally disrespectful to your downstairs neighbor.

P.S. This particular copper cup is from The Shoppe at Torino!

Let’s have two, three, four of these and then REALLY disrespect our neighbours. We could bake apology scones the next day.

No it’s not beery at all! Ginger beer is like a super-ginger soda. I bet you’ll love it!

Also that ginger beer?! Hell to the yeah! It’s way too expensive in the store and this looks so easy.

Absolutely LOVE Moscow Mules! I like to make them with fruit and tea infused vodkas. Plum and vanilla bean vodka and blackberry jam vodka are my favorite! Just muddle fruit (or loose leaf tea or jam) in a jar, top with vodka, cap and refrigerate for a a week or so. I just keep topping them off with more unflavored vodka as I use it. The fruit doesn’t go bad (since it’s essentially preserved in the alcohol) just loses it’s color over time.

Oh! I want to try every single moscow mule version you’re talkin’ about here!

I’m sorry! I’ll take a look and get it all sorted out.

I am already a fan of the Moscow Mule, but I didn’t realize/think about the fact that you can make homemade ginger beer! What a revelation! I definitely see that in my future. I would love to thrift the perfect copper pitcher/mugs, but I don’t see myself buying any new right now. It would make a great gift though!

Megan January 20, 2014 at 10:40 am

Hell yes! And yeah man, I found a copper mug at an antique shop!

This is amazing. I developed an insatiable obsession with ginger over the last year, especially ginger beer!! Seriously can’t wait to try this. I discovered a new cocktail last weekend called The Presbyterian (funny, because that’s what I am!) which is bourbon, bitters, and ginger beer. Woah.

Megan January 20, 2014 at 10:40 am

Oh! That sounds good! Love the name too.

My husband + I are obsessed with Moscow Mules lately. Love the idea of making your own ginger beer. Who knew it was so simple?? Love that first photo! Is it bad that I could go for one at 9am on a Monday?

I love Moscow Mule. Usually this cocktail is better with a traditional Moscow Mule Copper Mug. What don’t you get one!

I have seen Moscow Mule theft in bars. They are so attractive. I want one as well. But not from the bar. I brought one my self after carefully go through a comparison table in http://www.gomoscowmule.com. I decided the hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Sertodo Copper is my style.
