The Moscow Mule is a pretty classic vodka and ginger beer drink. Hubby and I have made more than a few since getting those copper mugs down in St. Augustine last year.

As a refresher: The Moscow Mule was invented in in 1941 by John G. Martin of G.F. Heublein Brothers, Inc. (East Coast spirits and food distributor) and Jack Morgan, President of Cock ‘n’ Bull Products (ginger beer maker). The “Moscow” portion of the name was due to the popular perception of Russian Vodka as excellent vodka.

Since there has been a resurgence in ginger beer, there has also been a resurgence in the Moscow Mule, and a bazillion different forms of the Moscow Mule. This Blue Mule is pretty tasty, and a wonderful drink anytime of the year. If you like ginger beer, give this Blue Mule a try!

Note: ginger beer is not ginger ale. It is a richer, more ginger-y (is that a word?) tasting ginger ale. The ginger beers today can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic (ginger beer began life as an alcoholic product). I linked to fever tree above. It is REALLY good, and can be had for about six bucks for a four pack at your local grocery store. It is found in the pop aisle, not in the beer aisle in most stores.

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
