The Moscow Mule dates back to 1941 when it was first poured for the Hollywood elite at a legendary watering hole known as Cock ‘N Bull. Today, the gingery concoction is largely credited with introducing Americans to vodka and has since been recognized by the LA Times as the “Great Los Angeles Cocktail.”

The Moscow Mule is a vodka-based cocktail spiced with ginger beer and lime, distinctively served up in a frosty copper mug with ice. While the copper mug is traditional, it’s definitely not required!

If you’re not familiar with this refreshing concoction already, you may due for some well-deserved patio time! But heck, aren’t we all!?
