Moscow Mule History

The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 by John G. Martin of the United States and Jack Morgan of Canada. The two men were working together on a project to create a vodka that could be exported to the United States. At the same time, ginger beer was becoming popular in the United States. Martin and Morgan decided to mix vodka with ginger beer and lime juice to create the Moscow Mule.

It quickly became popular, and is still a favorite today. There are many variations of the Moscow Mule, including the Copper Cup, the Kentucky Mule, the Mexican Mule, the Dark and Stormy, and the Santa Fe Mule.

The Moscow Mule is typically made with vodka, but can also be made with bourbon, tequila, or rum. The drink can also be made with different types of ginger beer, lime juice, and fruit juices.

It is a popular drink for summertime parties and barbecues. It is easy to make and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. The cocktail can also be made into a variety of different flavors, making it a perfect drink for any occasion.
