A truly great cocktail is more than alcohol swished together with your favorite mixer. Drinking, in and of itself, brings people together to laugh, share stories, and have fun, so any cocktail worth sipping should have its own personality and story.

The Moscow Mule, a standout among vodka drinks, is made with fizzy ginger beer and tangy lime juice. It fits on the list of a classic cocktails like few others. Even the copper cups it’s served in are more than just presentation. They bring out flavor and keep your drink exceptionally cold. We recommend grabbing a pair of these cups from our friends at Huckberry.
