Thursday night I had my first Moscow Mule.

It was perfect in every way possible.

No, I’m not just being dramatic. I can’t think of a better summer drink. Guys this is so good. I’m pretty sure it’s the copper mug. No really… need to make this guy in a copper mug. It keeps it really cold and maybe even makes the whole thing taste better?

Yes. I think so.

Copper Mugs aren’t the cheapest thing in the world (think a little more expensive than a red solo cup) but they would make a nice gift set for someone who loves this drink!

 I think you’ll like this.

It’s not too sweet – pretty much perfect. Be sure to add a good chunk of lime in there too.

Cheers to summer!
