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.
