I feel like I need to preface this post by declaring that this will probably be Noel’s favorite blog post that I ever write (and because I just said that, it’s basically guaranteed he’ll completely deny it).
Anyways, have any of you heard of Moscow Mules? They’re basically the most delicious drink known to man (okay, I’m completely exaggerating, but they’re good). Before this summer, I had never heard of them, and now they are becoming insanely popular. And I know, I know, at this point you’re probably wondering why I’m going on and on about some strange cocktail – but I promise, it’s relevant to this blog.
Moscow Mules are made by mixing ginger beer with vodka, and then adding a little lime. But what makes these little concoctions so special is not what’s in them, but what they’re in. You see, traditionally, Moscow Mules are served in copper mugs, and these bad boys are starting to pop up in every store. Apparently there’s a huge issue with people stealing them from bars, (tisk tisk), so instead of being a klepto like everyone else, I thought I’d do my due diligence and purchase a pair of these mugs so we could have them at home.
To be perfectly honest, when I went online to buy them, I thought I’d have to search until the end of the internet to find them. Not only that, but I figured I’d end up buying them from some shady overseas company. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out just how many stores are now carrying these mugs (and in such cool designs)! So naturally, I had to write a post about my favorite mugs. Here we go.
The simple shape and their sweet little handles are what I love most about the above mugs from Custom Copper Mugs. You can buy the pair for $44.95 over on their Etsy shop (they even have some sweet mustache mugs).
For a contemporary flare, check out the Moscow Mule Glass for $14.95 at Crate & Barrel.
And last but not least is this little number from Williams Sonoma (you can purchase the set of 2 for $59.95).
Have any of you tried Moscow Mules? Which mugs would you like to take home?
