A Little Background about Moscow Mule
Ironically, the Moscow Mule is not of Russian descent. It’s a red-blooded American drink, cooked up in Los Angeles in 1941 at the Cock ‘n’ Bull bar by two men: one, the bar manager, and the other, a Smirnoff exec who wanted to sell vodka to Americans.
Or perhaps it was the Cock ‘n’ Bull’s bartender, who claimed he made up the recipe to help offload cases of ginger beer that were cluttering up his basement. Either way—or neither way, as cocktail history is always wonky—it got very popular among the Hollywood elite, and according to drinks historian David Wondrich, helped America get acquainted with vodka. (That, and the Bloody Mary.)
The Moscow Mule’s iconic copper mug came from the Cock ‘n’ Bull’s idea factory as well. Hell of a marketing technique. And through nearly 80 years—and a scare about copper mug poisoning—it’s still the vessel in which bartenders serve up a Moscow Mule. The fun ones, anyway.
