Moscow Mules

A cup of fresh – that’s the only way I can describe our favorite drink.

While in Kansas City this past fall for the Chiefs home opener, D and I went exploring his home turf. Long story short: we found a bar, saw these copper mugs, asked the bartender what their purpose was, and ended up trying a drink we had never had before. I guess this cocktail was popular during the U.S.’s vodka craze, and apparently, the name refers to the popular perception of vodka as a Russian product.

[Let’s give one big “hell yeah” for a classic comeback!]

You can thank me later ;) they’re called Moscow Mules.

A cup of fresh – the only way I can describe our favorite drink.
