Make these refreshing Moscow Mules with just a few simple ingredients. Make sure to chill both your ginger beer and vodka for at least a few hours so your drinks are extra crisp. These are perfect to enjoy on a warm Spring or Summer evening, or afternoon we’re not judging.

Copper mugs are not required to enjoy a good Moscow Mule, but Moscow Mules are traditionally served in copper mugs. We picked up a set a long time ago similar to this set of two, but I also really like the look of these hammered copper mugs. Gather your ingredients together and get mixing.
Slice and squeeze half a lime for about 1 tbsp of lime juice. I really suggest only using fresh lime juice. It makes a big difference. This citrus juicer makes it super easy to juice the limes.
Next, add the lime juice to your mug (or glass).
Add 2 oz or (1/4 cup) of Vodka to the mug.
Add 4 oz (or 1/2 cup) of ginger beer to your mug.
Stir. Fill mug with about a cup of ice. We added a little more ginger beer to top it off.
