The history of this famous drink is somewhat hazy, but we do know for sure that serving this drink in copper mugs lends authenticity to your presentation. Originally invented sometime in the 1940s by John Martin of Smirnoff vodka and Jack Morgan of the famed Cock'n Bull pub; the story goes Jack was looking for a way to sell his ginger beer and John was looking for a way to sell his Vodka. Then, in a chance meeting at the Cock n' Bull pub, they hatched the idea for a joint effort to market their products together. A tasty drink, it did well and increased both of their sales. However, the cocktail really exploded sometime later in the 1950s when the copper mugs we added to the mix, and the popular cocktail we know and love today became a smash hit! In fact, the drink and the glasses it was served in became so widely popular, Woody Allen even posed in some 1960s Smirnoff ads with the vodka and copper mugs!
Flash forward to 2013 and 2014, when the Moscow mule mug became a hit in bars and restaurants across the U.S.A.
