Made popular in the 1940s by Hollywood socialite hotspot Cock ‘n Bull, The Moscow Mule has become a major drink trend across America. The drink combines vodka, lime juice and ginger beer served up in an iconic copper mug. What seems like a pretty simple drink now was a lot harder to sell back when vodka first hit the scene. Now, Moscow Mules are being slung across bar tops nationwide and are recognized for their unique presentation and fresh flavors. It’s time to go out and see for yourself what makes this classic cocktail so delicious. Try one of these local watering holes below!
