How to Impress Guests at Your Memorial Day Party

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means...friends, family, BBQ dinner parties, and cocktails.

Call us biased, but we can’t think of a better way to honor the men and women who have died for our freedom than to raise up a Moscow Mule and make a toast over some delicious food. 

In an effort to help you throw a Memorial Day picnic your family members and friends will remember for a lifetime, we’ve put together a few  tips on how to merge one of America’s most historic drinks--the Moscow Mule-- with one of America’s most patriotic holidays.

And to make sure your Memorial Day party is filled with red, white, and “mule,” we’re offering 20% OFF everything in our store from May 26 to May 29.  

We hope you’ll give a few of our party suggestions a try. Enjoy!

Mix the Perfect Cocktail

Over the years, men and women have given their lives to protect our freedom to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And in 1941, Sophie Berezinski traveled all the way from Russia (carrying 2,000 copper mugs) in order to find that happiness for herself.

Once she arrived, she began to chase the American dream as she looked for a buyer of her very own invention--the Original Moscow Mule Mug. 

After teaming up with John Martin and Jack Morgan, the trio concocted the Original Moscow Mule which was served in Sophie’s copper mugs.

This Memorial Day, serve your friends and family a patriotic Moscow Mule!

Red, White, and Mule Drink Recipe:


  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 6 ounces ginger beer
  • 1/4 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Lime garnish
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries


  1. Place ice into Moscow Copper mug and pour in vodka.
  2. Squeeze in lime juice and top with ginger beer.
  3. Muddle a handful of strawberries and blueberries and mix into the drink.
  4. Garnish with lime wedge and enjoy. Cheers!

Cook Your Party Food to Perfection

You may be using a grill to cook up burgers, hot dogs, and other meats for your Memorial Day celebration, but for your side dishes, we recommend you do the cooking indoors.

Our collection of copper pots are made from pure copper and are filled with a stainless-steel core that helps regulate temperatures while cooking. They are the perfect tools to cook anything from the meat you can’t fit on the grill to healthy veggie dishes.

The best part...they are super easy to clean, which means you can spend more time enjoying the holiday festivities with your guests and less time in the kitchen scrubbing dishes!

Set Up Spectacular Celebration Decor

Adding festive decor can easily take your party from dull to Yankee Doodle Dandy!

While a traditional Memorial Day patriotic color palette is red, white, and blue, we recommend that you add a little sparkle with some copper this year.

Since the 1840s, copper mining has played a large role in American history. It’s a metal that literally runs throughout our  country’s veins and luckily for you, we know a thing or two about this beautiful element.

It doesn’t take much to jazz up a tablescape with some copper accent pieces that will blow your guests away.

Here are a few ways you can use our copper products as decor.

Idea #1 - Use our copper mugs as vases. Fill the mugs with red, white, and blue flowers for a festive feel.

Idea #2 - Why wait for a fireworks display to enjoy a light show? Grab a few Moscow Copper candles and use them as elegant table centerpieces. Bonus...when you’re done with the candle, you can use the mug for your favorite beverages!

Idea #3 - Setting up a mini self-serve bar makes it easy for your guests to grab their own drinks. Set up a small cocktail bar and use a Moscow Copper ice bucket as a statement piece that also keeps your beverages ice-cold.

Don’t forget! In honor of the courageous men and women who have died for our freedom, we’re offering 20% OFF everything in our store from May 26 to May 29. Which means over Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to shop and save big!

Be sure to pick up your favorite Moscow Copper products during this sale so you can enjoy them all summer long!
