It’s not hard to imagine the delight you and your friends will have sucking down one of the most pleasurable cocktails known – the venerable Moscow Mule.
The Mule, sometimes thought to be the creation of Russian miners looking for new ways to warm themselves it cold Russian winter, was actually invented through the collaboration of three people. First, was John Martin of G.F. Heublein Brothers, an East Coast spirits distributor. Second, was Jack Morgan, proprietor of the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant in Los Angeles , who also happened to have a company that produced ginger beer – a key ingredient in the tasty cocktail. And third was Rudolph Kunett, president of the Pierre Smirnoff, Heublein’s vodka division.
The three wondered what would happen when a shot of vodka joined ginger beer with a squeeze of lime. The combination was tried, the men were happy, and after a few more, it was named the Moscow Mule.
But whatever its origins, the Moscow Mule has endured. And to be authentic, it has to be served in a copper mug, designed to keep it frosty till the last sip.
