Why Use a Copper Mug for Moscow Mules?

When you think about some of the most popular cocktails consumed each year around the world, it is impossible to separate the drink from the glass it is served in. Great cocktails are a combination of well-balanced alcohols and mixers, shaken well, and poured into the proper glass. Whiskey is always enjoyed in a low-ball glass. A martini is served in the classic long-stem, wide-brim glass. The best margaritas come in large glasses that would make even the smallest serving bowl look tiny by comparison.

So when it comes to enjoying a Moscow Mule, why would you ever consider drinking it from anything other than a copper mug? Each of the drinks we just mentioned above are popular because they heighten the senses with immense flavors, enticing aromas, and the best possible presentation. More importantly, each of these drinks relies upon its glass to display its personality and story. What makes a copper mule mug so integral to the enjoyment of the Moscow Mule?


A good martini is shaken over ice and poured into its familiar long-stem glass. Those enjoying these drinks have a better experience when the drink is served in the proper vessel. Copper mugs enhance your enjoyment of a Moscow Mule because it is ideal for maintaining the cool temperature of your drink, here’s why:

  1. Solid copper mugs have been used for centuries to enjoy cool drinks because its structure isolates the cool of the drink and the heat of your hand.
  2. First and foremost, copper mugs cool down immediately when your Moscow Mule hits the bottom.
  3. The copper walls of the mug insulate the drink, keeping it cool whether you’re enjoying it inside by the heater on a winter day or outside on a sunny summer day.
  4. The rim of a copper mug cools down instantaneously, offering a chilling sensation with every sip.
  5. Best of all, the copper handle insulates the heat from your hand and keeps it away from your chilly Moscow Mule.


Taste is always subjective, and will vary from one individual to another. However, there is a good case to be made that copper mule mugs enhance the taste and aroma of the Moscow Mule. Some experts suggest that when vodka contacts copper, the copper mug begins to oxidize slightly.

The result is a boost to the aroma of your Moscow Mule and a greater flavor profile for the vodka in your drink. Additionally, cold copper mugs can increase the bubbles in your drink, bringing out the carbonation of the ginger beer and improving the fizziness of your drink.


How you consume your favorite drinks defines who you are as a cocktail enthusiast. The vessel you enjoy your drink in speaks volumes to. Sure, you could consume your Moscow Mule in a plastic cup, but will you really enjoy it the same way?
