Moscow mules are one of the most refreshing, universally-palatable and not-to-sweet classic cocktails to order (or make at home). However, it’s worth mentioning that despite the vodka, ginger beer, and lime’s flavor, the quintessential luxe metallic copper and rose gold-hued mugs that the drink calls for are ridiculously photogenic and of course, infinitely Instagram-worthy. However, if you’re looking for a chic set to add to your home bar set-up, it’s important to note that not all Moscow mule mugs are created equal. In fact, some of the lower-end models are prone to tarnishing and fading—especially if you plan on washing them in the dishwasher.
So what’s important to look for when shopping for Moscow mule mugs? First things first, is choosing a set constructed with authentic 100 percent copper—not flimsy metal alternatives or worse, plastic. Many Moscow mule mugs are now also lined with a food-safe steel lining, which helps prevent rusting and extends the life of your set exponentially. Aside from these design elements, the shape, hue, and style you choose is completely up to your personal preferences, but if you’re stumped with where to start, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to get you started.
