About the Copper Mug
If you’ve ever ordered a Moscow Mule at the bar, you know that they’re served in a copper mug. This has become the staple for Moscow Mules.
WHAT ARE COPPER MUGS?
Copper mugs are as simple as their name: a mug, but made of copper and used to drink a nice iced cold Moscow Mule. Copper Mugs are more than just a cool trend though, there’s a reason that they’re used. That’s because Copper controls temperature and keeps the mule cold. The copper enhances the flavors of the ginger and citrus lime, and the vodka flavor. The mug keeps your mule chilly and refreshing, so you can sip on it for a while as you walk around talking and sipping without the heat from your hand warming it up.
But now with the ready-to-drink canned cocktail companies like ‘Merican Mule, you can enjoy a nice Moscow Mule in a copper mug or in a can. They call it #coppermuleoptional because with their canned cocktail, you don’t need the copper mug if you don’t want it.
ARE COPPER MUGS BAD?
