Coffee tastes better when sipped out of a ceramic mug, while beer tastes better out of a pint glass. The same principal goes for Moscow Mules, which are always best in copper cups, if only because the vessels are beautiful and will keep the drink cold for longer. 

Popularized during the vodka craze of the 1950’s, this classic American cocktail is made from vodka, ginger beer, limejuice, and a slice of fresh lime. We like the 18-ounce version of the Moscow Mule cup because of its simple, elegant design that will develop its own unique patina over time. Plus, the mugs are dishwasher safe.
