You are going to love this easy tutorial on How To Make a Moscow Mule and some amazing gift ideas too!
I partnered with Gigasavvy to bring this Moscow Mule Recipe and gift ideas to you! All opinions, ideas and photos are mine.
I've gotta tell y'all...I'm not a big "cocktail" kinda girl, I'm more of a wine kinda girl. A few weeks ago, a friend ordered a Moscow Mule while we were out watching a basketball game, and offered me a drink. Now, I'm always up for trying new foods, but I usually shy away from trying friend's cocktails. But...I LOVE those cute copper mugs they serve Moscow Mules in, so I said yes to trying hers. I was delightfully surprised at how much I liked it. It was a little sweet, but not too sweet and a little tart, which I love. It was light and not too boozy. I can definitely see myself having a Moscow Mule or two in the future! Because I'd rather enjoy my cocktails at home and don't go out much, I had to find out how to make one for myself, and I wanted to share this easy Moscow Mule Recipe with you!
I also want to tell you about some super luxurious gift boxes that are perfect for Christmas or any holiday for that matter! I put together a quick video showing just how easy they are to make, and am also including photos and a recipe that you can print for yourself below!

My parents went to California in 1951. They came back with some amazing ideas. One was Caesar Salad, western
omlet and last of all Moscow Mule complete with copper cups. We had Caesar salad every night it seemed. You could not
buy croutons at the time and she made her own by toasting bread and rubbing it with garlic. memories!
Love this so much...thanks for sharing your memories with me! ~Jess

The reason why I remember the mules is because my father had a bar and those cups sat on that bar the rest of his life gathering dust. So the Caesar Salad and the Western Omlet were the winners! I also read an article in the Wall Street Journal that said that bars were having trouble because people were stealing the cute little cups.
My favorite drink! However, I prefer real lime juice and also add soda water to cut the ginger beer because I don't like my drinks sweet. You could also add fresh mint and/or thyme.
I prefer fresh lime juice as well, and I love the idea of cutting the ginger beer with some soda water! Thanks for sharing that, Tammara! ~Jess
