The iconic Moscow Mule is everything except made in Russia. In the early 1940s, vodka made its first appearance in the United States. Unfortunately, not everyone fancied this drink. One night an American bar owner wanted to get rid of a lot of dead stock. Guess which drinks waited for some attention in the basement … Ginger beer and vodka! The Moscow Mule cocktail was born and did not need any time to seduce every doubter thanks to its fresh taste.
