Whether you find yourself at a trendy, upscale bar with leather upholstered stools, or a beer-soaked tavern in a seedy part of town, you can count on the fact that you’ll be able to order a Moscow Mule. Sure, one might be made with house-made ginger syrup, and the other with watered down ginger ale, but you’ll most definitely receive some combination of ginger, vodka, and lime.

Sweet, spicy, and a little tart, the Moscow Mule has experienced a major comeback. It’s typically served in a sleek copper mug topped with a mint sprig and lime wedge, sometimes touting a slender spoon or stirrer. This summer, sip it while roasting s’mores by a bonfire, or pair it with smoky, barbecued meats. Below is everything you’ll need for serving flawless Moscow Mules, plus a delicious recipe from renowned bartender Michael Neff of N.Y.C.-based Holiday Cocktail Lounge.
