What Is A Moscow Mule?
According to Wikipedia, “A Moscow mule is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. It is a type of buck; therefore, sometimes called a vodka buck. The Moscow mule is popularly served in a copper mug, which takes on the cold temperature of the liquid.”
What Is Ginger Beer?
Taste of Home describes Ginger Beer as the following “Ginger beer is a non-alcoholic beverage with a robust, spicy and aromatic flavor. It’s made with a blend of ginger, water, and sugar that’s fermented with yeast, then carbonated and bottled.”
