The Moscow Mule is a classic long drink created originally as a marketing tool to sell Ginger Beer and Vodka. A magical combination of flavours has allowed it to survive the test of time. This drink is the beginning of the end or an example of how commercial pressures can result in excellent drinks, depending on your point of view! As with any Mule, quality Ginger Beer must be used, ensuring the result has a spicy kick. The gentler flavour of Ginger Ale is no substitute.
