The Moscow Mule is one of the great success stories of mixological history. Conceived by a couple of guys one afternoon 75 years ago in a bar on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles (you can’t make this stuff up!) the Mule went on to find widespread acceptance and fame and spawn an ever-growing number of variations including (but not limited to) the Mexican Mule, the Kentucky Mule, the Garden Mule, the Irish Mule, the Jamaican Mule, the Hawaiian Mule and our personal favorite, the Yule Mule. But, at the end of the day, what really sets the Mule apart from other drinks is not so much the drink itself as the vessel in which it is served: the copper mug.
Variations on a Theme: The Many Faces of our Copper Mugs
Today the Moscow Mule and its offspring are as closely associated with the copper mug as wine is with the wine glass. So much so that serving a Mule drink in a standard glass - even to someone familiar with the drink - would no doubt elicit the question “What’s this?” But, just as with wine glasses, the mug you choose to serve a Mule in is not limited to a single style. So in this post we’re going to take a quick look at some of the styles of copper mugs available from Paykoc.
Below are some of the most popular copper mug styles we sell at Paykoc any one of which will make a wonderful receptacle for a Moscow Mule:
- The Copper Hammered Standard Tankard - The Standard Hammered Tankard hits all the right traditional notes and is a great conversation piece in its own right. The hammered finish catches and reflects the light in a way that speaks to the ages and the tapered form jogs loose associations with colonial times. It’s a truly timeless style that will have your guests exclaiming their delight and asking where you ever got such a thing.
- Copper Standard Tankards - Equally traditional to its hammered cousin the copper Standard Tankard looks great on any bar. The rich rosy hues of the copper are a perfect complement to the greens of the lime garnish and to see a Moscow Mule in a Standard Tankard on a polished granite bar surface is to behold a thing of beauty.
- Copper Barrel Moscow Mule Mug - The barrel shape of our copper Barrel Moscow Mule mugs is another one that harks back to the days of old and seems right at home playing host to any variant of the Moscow Mule. The robust profile of the barrel echoes the hearty nature of the concoction within and the two work off each other to create a perfect cocktail experience.
- Solid Copper Moscow Mule Stein - You’ll think you’ve been transported back to Central Europe in the 18th century when your Moscow Mule comes served in one of our solid copper Moscow Mule steins. These handcrafted delights will pique your imagination at the same time you appreciate their beautiful balance and easy usability. Keep your Mule icy cold for extended periods of time with a Moscow Mule stein from Paykoc.
