Why is a Mule Served in a Copper Mug?
When an iced drink is served in a copper mug, it becomes icy and chilled. Drinking from a chilled copper mug is a joyful sensory experience and it adds to the experience of the cocktail.
It’s important to note that the mug must be 100% copper to turn ice cold. These mugs are fun to collect and come in different variations. They also make a great gift idea.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Mexican Mule made of?
A tequila mule is made of three ingredients: ginger beer, tequila and lime. Other ingredients or garnishes can be added for fun, but only those three ingredients are essential.
Can you make a Mexican Mule with mezcal?
Yes, a Mezcal Mule is another popular variation of the Mexican Mule.
Should I choose light or dark tequila?
Light tequilas have a light flavor and are bottled right after distillation, while darker tequilas have a more intense flavor and are bottled right after distillation.
We prefer to use a light tequila for most cocktail recipes. When choosing a bottle, we recommend a medium priced option.
