Aside from stoking some warmth in native Russians for centuries now, vodka is a favoured base spirit for cocktail makers owing its fairly pliable properties; it meekly mingles with other flavours and retains them while infusing strong alcoholic essence.

Prep Time

Total Time

Moscow Mule is a classic Russian cocktail made by blending Vodka and Ginger Beer. The original recipe was served in a Copper Mug filled with ice. During the 1940s, Vodka was not popular outside of Russia and Central Europe. After purchasing a popular Vodka, John Martin of G.F. Heublein and Bros. started to promote this colourless spirit outside of Europe by using the Moscow Mule.

John Martin and Jack Morgan, the owners of the classic English pub ‘Cock n Bull’ located on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, invented this cocktail. This is one of the Vodka cocktails, which leaves a gingery aftertaste. This delicious cocktail is a built-up concoction and is popular as a sipper. Popular stars like Woody Allen have promoted this concoction and its original recipe can be found in the old issues of Playboy Magazine as well.
