GUEST BLOGGER: Moscow Mule - The "It" Drink of 2015

Tuesday, Feb 17, 1:45PM

Almost anyone you ask will predict that the “it” drink of 2015 is bound to be the Moscow Mule. This cocktail was actually invented in the 1940’s, but it is certainly making a come back this year! If you haven’t heard of it, don’t let the funny name fool you. It’s trendy, hip, and on every drink menu around. The most basic recipe includes vodka, ginger beer and lime juice served over ice, but there are many variations of this popular cocktail making it versatile enough for every season or occasion. 

In our opinion, the most fun part about this drink is the copper mug that it is served in. Sure, you can drink one out of a regular glass, but putting it in copper mug just makes it taste that much better. Before mixing up one of these trendy drinks at home, be sure to visit The Avenue to purchase copper mugs of your own. Williams-Sonoma carries a hammered copper version and Pottery Barn offers a smooth finish set of two. Both of these stores give you the option of adding a monogram, which we think would make the perfect addition to your own barware, and also would be great as a personalized gift.  Cheers!
