Legend has it that the Moscow Mule was created when three entrepreneurs—a vodka businessman, a ginger-beer maker and a copper-mug saleswoman—were down on their luck. The copper mug may seem decorative, but some argue it’s the key to keeping your mule colder longer, or that it even adds a bit of flavor. We love this zero-proof version all the same in any ol’ glass.
