The Moscow Mule originated in New York in 1941 and became widely popular in the 1950’s during the vodka craze. The name refers to the popular perception of vodka as a Russian product. In it’s purest form this drink is one part lime juice, two parts vodka and three to five parts ginger beer served with ice in a copper mug.  The copper mug keeps the drink ice cold.
