This week we have a no-brainer cocktail that we knew was going to be good from the very beginning. How did we know this? Because it contained one of our favorite beverages: Ginger Beer!


Moscow Mule
Author: 2-in-1 International Mixed Drinks Recipe Card Collection, 1977
  • 1 jigger vodka
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • Ginger beer
  1. Pour vodka and lime juice into a 10 ounce highball glass. And ice and stir. Fill up with ginger beer.



And not just any ginger beer. This Moscow Mule is made with Cock ‘n Bull Ginger Beer, which is mid-century itself since they started making it in 1946! And I totally understand while it is still around, It is very, very good.

“Is that a Moscow Mule?”

“Yes. I was just finishing it up for the blog and – “

“Gimmie. I had a rough day.”



Tom’s day significantly improved by a good drink!

The Verdict: Very Good!

From the Tasting Notes:

If you can find it, use Cock ‘n Bull ginger beer in these. It is by far the best. We served this in a glass, but according to 2-in-1 International Mixed Drinks the traditional vessel for the Moscow Mule is a copper mug!
