Dating back to 1941, the Moscow Mule is an effortlessly easy cocktail to make at home. It’s a story of how vodka met ginger beer for that extra kick (by the mule/buck) of flavour. And because vodka is typically associated with Russia, Moscow seemed like a natural prelude to Mule.

The Moscow Mule mixes only three ingredients and requires no equipment, making it one of the easier cocktails to make. It perfectly balances spicy and sweet for the ultimate refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day.
