Copper mugs are perfect for a traditional Moscow Mule. They help to keep the drink cold and add to the ambience. But don’t let the lack of a copper mug stop you. Any heavier chilled glass over 16 oz. will work.
Vodka is the base of the Moscow Mule. It’s important to use a good quality vodka to ensure that your drink tastes great. This may vary depending on how strong you like your drinks. Feel free to adjust the amount of vodka to your preference.
