The Story Behind The Moscow Mule
The Moscow Mule was first introduced to the world in Manhattan in 1941. As the story goes, a bartender had mistakenly ordered too much ginger beer, and invented this drink to unload excess stock. It had the added benefit of featuring vodka, a spirit that wasn’t yet super mainstream. There is some debate around exactly who came up with this new classic, but most can agree that it’s hard to find a more refreshing and easy-to-make cocktail on a warm day.
