John G. Martin had recently (in 1939) acquired the rights to Smirnoff vodka for Heublein, a small Connecticut based liquor and food distributor. Meanwhile, Jack Morgan, a friend of his and owner of Hollywood's famous British pub, the Cock'n'Bull Salon on Sunset Strip, was trying to launch his own brand of ginger beer but sales were not going well. Legend has it that the two men met at New York City's Chatham Bar and hit on the idea of mixing Martin's vodka with Morgan's ginger beer and adding a squeeze of lime (perhaps inspired by the Cuba Libre) to create the Moscow Mule. – Difford’s Guide
Moscow Mule Recipe
Ginger Beer / Cocktails
A 1941 classic, this cocktail is elevated by Rootside’s fresh ingredients and the subtle complexity of Stillhead’s Vodka. Serve in a copper mug.
1 oz Rootside’s Ginger Beer Mixer
1/4 oz Fresh lime juice
1.5 oz Vodka (Stillhead’s Vodka)
Sparkling water or club soda
Fill a copper mug (or highball glass) with crushed ice.
Add Rootside’s Ginger Beer Mixer, lime juice to taste, and vodka.
Top off the rest of the mug with sparkling water or club soda.
Gently stir to combine, garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.
If using a larger than normal mug, adjust to taste.
Moscow Mule variations
Try substituting the vodka for different spirits! Rye, rum, or tequila all work great. Our surprise favorite is an Absinthe Mule; we use Baba Yaga Absinthe from Arbutus Distillery, but because of it’s high ABV we only use 1 oz per drink.
