How did the classic drink find it’s way into the copper mug?
The Moscow Mule was reportedly invented when the presidents of a ginger beer company a liquor distributor and Smirnoff were sitting in a bar inventing a new drink. The iconic copper mug the drink is served in was the genius of John Martin, president of the liquor distributor, who used it as a means for the drink to stand out in bars and be asked for.
As to who the genius was who decided to replace vodka with Tequila we don’t know, but we commend them for it. Here’s our favorite recipe for a delicious Jalisco Mule!
