6 Must-Try Moscow Mule Variations

We’re of the opinion that a party isn’t a party until there’s an incredible array of drinks. One of our favourites is the classic Moscow Mule mixed with Bundaberg Ginger Beer. We’ve compiled six of the best Moscow Mule variations so you can learn how to make these delicious Moscow Mule recipes at home.  

The Origin of the Moscow Mule

Despite its name, the Moscow Mule cocktail hails from the USA, not Russia. Most believe that sometime in the 1950s, a thrifty barman at a bar in Hollywood was clearing out the basement before his shift started. Vodka wasn’t popular back then and a few cases of the spirit were adding to the clutter under the stairs. 

Being a thrifty fella (as well as an ingenious mixologist), the barman got creative. He mixed a measure of vodka with lime, added ginger beer and ice and served it (just to be different) in a jaunty copper mug. He christened it the ‘Moscow Mule Cocktail’ and it was an instant hit. 

While there’s nothing better than a classic, there’s something to be said for mixing things up every now and then. So the next time you’re heading to a barbeque or a party why not give one of these Moscow Mules a try?
