When I hear the word Moscow Mule, it makes me feel like its a Christmasy drink. However, these creative Moscow Mule Recipes are far from only being delicious at Christmas time.
What is a Moscow Mule?
If you are like me, you probably hand no clue what was in this cocktail let alone if you would want one. A Moscow Mule is a cocktail that is made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice. Because it is made with Vodka, it is sometimes called a Vodka Buck.
It is usually served in a coper mug. This is because the copper mug takes on the cold temperature of the liquid providing you with a cool, refreshing drink.
