The Moscow Mule

moscow

Recipe:
2/6 Russian Vodka
a dash fresh lime juice
4/6 ginger beer
Served on the rocks in a copper mug

The Moscow Mule was invented by two friends – John Martin & Jack Morgan.  Jack was the owner of the Cock ‘n’ Bull, a pub on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, which manufactured its own ginger beer. John  was the owner of the most important wine & liquor distributer in the U.S.  Six years after  Prohibition started, Martin bought the rights to a brand new, then unheard of Russian vodka company: Smirnoff.  The friends combined the new vodka with Morgan’s ginger beer in a copper mug & the rest is history!
