Origin: 1940’s

Despite its name and main ingredient, the Moscow Mule doesn’t hail from Russia. It’s a red-blooded American cocktail, cooked up in Manhattan in 1941 by three men in the beverage industry: one a distributor, one a maker of ginger beer, and one a maker of vodka. They wondered what it would taste like to add two shots of vodka to ginger beer and a squeeze of lime. It tasted good. Thus the Moscow Mule, named after their location at the Chatham Hotel, the birthplace of “Little Moscow,” was born. 

Or so the legend goes. The more likely story is that Wes Price, head bartender at the Cock’n Bull restaurant in Los Angeles, invented it while trying to clean out some dead stock from the restaurant’s basement. Either way, it’s a drink that, with its signature copper mug, has become extremely popular over the years. Get the mug if you want to go all out, or serve it in a regular glass. Either way, it’s timeless and delicious.
