Moscow Mule

  • Base Spirit Vodka
  • Preparation Shaken
  • Flavor Refreshing
  • Served On the Rocks

Legend has it that the Moscow Mule was cerated in 1941 during a meeting between John A. Morgan, president of Cock ‘n’ Bull Products and owner of the Hollywood Cock ‘n’ Bull Restaurant; John G. Martin, president of G.F. Heublein Brothers Inc. of Hartford, Conn.; and Rudolph Kunett, president of the Pierre Smirnoff, Heublein’s vodka division. Allegedly, the three men dreamt up the drink as a remedy for both slow vodka sales and Morgan’s PR needs for his new ginger beer. According to the story, the copper mug that the Mule is traditionally served in was a marketing stunt. However, later accounts credit Wes Price, a bartender at the Cock ‘n’ Bull.

This recipe calls ginger syrup, but you can mess around with ginger ale or ginger beer in a crunch.
