We have another recipe as part of our Moscow Mule series. This one combines the sweetness of figs with the lovely tartness of lemons. 

We love the fig infused vodka in this recipe by award-winning vodka makers Black Infusions.  It is subtle and very charming.  Mixed with the lemon and ginger beer, this is one of our favorite drinks.

The History Of The Moscow Mule

Way back in 1941 in a Los Angeles pub called the “Cock ’n’ Bull”, the owners of vodka and ginger beer companies found themselves in that pub on the same day comparing their troubles about the slow sales they were experiencing. 

After drowning their sorrows with a few beverages, the gentlemen turned their minds to creating a new drink to help sell their products. In particular, they wondered what would happen if they combined vodka with ginger beer and the squeeze of a lime. The bartender brought ice and limes and got to work on the concoction, which was served in distinctive copper cups. Soon the copper mule mugs were raised and clinked, the gentlemen counted to three, and then they took their first sips. It was good!

And, with that, the moscow mule drink was born!
