Over the course of the past few weeks, we have made quite a few Moscow Mule cocktails. I am not gonna lie. We loved it. Today, we are closing up this series and moving on to something new, but I will not forget this cocktail. It will remain in regular rotation in the Ramshackle Pantry household. To summarize some highlights of what we have covered in this series:
- We looked into the history of the Moscow Mule. It was invented by the owner of Smirnoff Vodka, the owner of Cock ‘n Bull ginger beer, and his girlfriend who owned a copper mine.
- We looked at the elements that make a great Mule.
- Made some Moscow Mules from recipes we found on the web.
- We mixed THE BEST, and accurate, Moscow Mule.
- Switched up a few recipes by making a Limoncello lavender Moscow Mule and some Moscow Mule Jell-O Shots.
We really covered some territory with this cocktail classic. I love being able to research the details of cocktails and learning the story behind them. Each dish or cocktail we cover has an interesting story. There is always a story about how it was created and how it evolved into the dishes we love today. There are many great recipes to be made and I feel better equipped to make those if I understand the heritage and history of a drink. This drink was no different. Next, we focus our attention on Chicago! Can you guess what we are making? Let me know in the comment section below and please follow me on Pinterest.
