If you’re a fan of SPF, you know we love cocktails. We’re relaxing with a twist on the classic Moscow Mule recipe this Labor Day.
We’ve upgraded our copper mugs to the beautiful cups you see in the picture. They are from a company called Moscow Muled.
The cups are sturdy, yet light. They’re and not heavy in your hands. And the handles are comfortable in your fingers.
Copper is a good conductor, so it’s a perfect vessel for cocktails because it cups keep drinks colder longer.
You can’t beat the price. Each cup is only $12.50.
If you love Moscow Mules and copper cups, we definetly recommend getting a set of these from Moscow Muled.
- We revived our copper mugs in exchange for a review, but all opinions are our own.
This recipe is amazing. When we first tried it, we left out the bitters. Don’t make this mistake. The bitters add a complexity to the drink that’s needed. It tames the harshness of the rosemary, allowing it to shine through without overpowering the drink.
You can get bitters at most grocery stores. It’s a little expensive (ours was about $8 for a small bottle), but you only use a little bit, so it’s worth it. We will be adding it to our regular cocktails to up their game. You should be able to find rosemary at your local grocery store too. It’s usually with the vegetables.
