Welcome to the seventh Wine Wednesday of Christmas! In this installment of Twelve Wine Wednesdays Of Christmas we’re presenting the Moscow Mule gift set from Mule Science. The Moscow Mule was invented in the early 1940’s in Los Angeles and is traditionally served in a copper mug as a unique presentation and because copper keeps the beverage cold longer.
Check out the demonstration video, then see the photo and link below to order (or skip the video and read on).
How many variations of the Moscow Mule are there? As many as your imagination can concoct! Try experimenting based on your tastes.
The recipe for a standard Moscow Mule, as demonstrated in our video, is 2 ounces of vodka, juice squeezed from half a lime, and 4 ounces of ginger beer (or enough ginger beer to fill the mug to the top) over ice garnished with a lime slice and spring of mint.
Here are a few popular variations.
New Orleans Mule: Substitute Bourbon for vodka and instead of adding ginger beer, use a coffee liqueur such as Kahlúa, Midnight Espresso, Sheridan’s Irish Coffee Liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Allen’s Coffee Brandy or St. George Spirits NOLA Coffee Liqueur.
London Mule (aka Gin-Gin Mule, Munich Mule or Foghorn): Substitute gin for vodka.
Mexican Mule: Substitute Tequila for vodka.
Jamaican Mule: Substitute spiced rum for vodka.
Irish Mule: Substitute Irish whiskey for vodka.
French Mule: Cognac and angostura bitters.
Southern Mule: Substitute Southern Comfort for vodka.
Mistletoe Mule: Garnish with rosemary and cranberries instead of lime and mint.
