The Moscow mule was developed as a marketing gimmick when three friends created a drink that used the products they were each creating. A copper mug held a drink containing lime, ginger beer, and vodka.
The drink was a hit, and now most people use copper mugs when drinking this summer beverage.
I, however, got this mug for its other benefits. I like how copper cups transfer heat, so I can sit around a campfire and cup my hands around a warm mug of hot chocolate and enjoy myself.
Alternatively, I can dip cool spring water and take a drink when I am out on the land clearing stumps and working on my dang-blasted backhoe…
The copper conducts the heat (or cold) directly to the lip of the glass so that you get the benefits of your drink very rapidity. I love it when I am out working in the heat. It makes me feel so much better.
I also like the hammered texture and quality construction of the mug. It is very classy looking, and is a great addition to my camp cooking set.
Two things I feel like I must share with you, watch out for brain freeze when drinking icy beverages and I did receive this item at reduced cost in exchange for an honest review on Amazon.
