Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Berry Moscow Mule

January 18, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey Hey,

This week's recipe is our variation on the classic and delightfully refreshing Moscow Mule. I love everything about this cocktail from the fresh and frozen berries to the bite of the ginger beer. So let's break out the copper mugs, which are a must. Copper is a superior thermal conductor, so copper mugs respond to the temperature of what is inside, keeping it chilled or warm depending on the beverage. When containing a Moscow mule, copper mugs become super chill, like you soon will be after your first or second sip. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
