I’ve Been Moscow Muled

by Editorial Team | October 3rd, 2019 | Techniques, Tools, and Tips

First, a confession: I don’t drink Moscow Mules because they have ginger beer. I am an odd ginger person. I like ginger ale but not ginger beer. I like gingerbread cake but not ginger snaps. I know, it’s a bit annoying, so when asked in general I usually just say that I’m not a big fan of ginger.

So, when I had the opportunity to try some Moscow Mule mugs, my first thought was that I’d have someone else actually use the mug and provide feedback. Then I did a little reading on their website.

It was a true, shake my head moment. “Be more creative!” my brain shouted. Right on their homepage, there were numerous suggestions, which I would want to try. For those of you, who are stuck in non-creative mode, let me help. With a Moscow Muled mug, you can:

  • Serve a cocktail of a different persuasion in it
  • Sip your morning coffee
  • Present dessert in elegant fashion
  • Use it as a beautiful water glass at your desk
  • Forget using it for food, and fill it with flowers

Now with my bias put aside, I pondered how I’d try my new to me mug. I decided to keep it as close to its original raison d’être as possible and made a tequila and diet tonic. (Side note: a very tasty drink, if you haven’t had one.) Serving it in a copper mug gave this drink that little bit more. Much like having tea in a fancy cup makes it feel extra special, so does this mug.

Even better than feeling fancy, you can feel good about yourself. When you buy one of these mugs, 15% of profits are donated to charity. How’s that for a win-win? Pretty mug for you, help for others. What’s not to like?

Note- I did receive a complimentary Moscow Muled mug, but that had no bearing on my opinion or review of the item.
