The Moscow Mule was created in the 1940′ in America, to relaunch the beverage made by mixing ginger beer (made with ginger, sugar, water, lemon juice and yeast) and Russian vodka. The long drink was served in large copper mugs bearing the engraved image of a mule, by which it became known as “Moscow Mule”.
- 4 cl vodka

- 10 cl ginger beer
Pour the vodka and ginger beer in a shaker with lots of ice, add lemon or lime juice. Mix and serve in the traditional copper mug, or otherwise in an old fashioned glass (a short tumbler traditionally used to serve whiskey on the rocks)
