Where to find ginger beer in the grocery store:
When I decided I wanted to make a Moscow Mule for the first time, I had never bought (or drank) ginger beer. I assumed it was in the beer aisle and couldn’t find it.
Apparently most ginger beers are non-alcoholic (less than 0.5% alcohol) and are found in the soft drink aisle of the grocery store.
Do Moscow Mules have to be served in a copper mug?
Of course not! This cocktail is traditionally served in a copper mug because of its history, but it’s also just as delicious served in a highball glass. The benefit of serving in a copper mug is that the metal maintains the ice cold temperature of the drink.

To make this a five ⭐️ add some Monin Habanero Lime syrup or a few sliced jalapeños. Sweet and spicy!
I suggest bringing the vodka amount down to 3 oz and adding a 1.5 oz amount of Malibu!
