Oh, copper. We love you so much. Your amazing conductivity gets our electricity to us. You have intrinsic properties that can destroy a wide variety of microorganisms, including MRSA and the flu virus. And also, you hold one of our new favorite drinks.

The copper mug is crucial to the creation of a Moscow Mule, one of the most popular drinks of the 1950s and 60s, which is making a resurgence, so we celebrate it with our Periodic Copper Mug. It's the conductivity of copper that works in its favor, making the entire experience of enjoying a Moscow Mule refreshing. The basic recipe. Mix:

  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 4 oz. ginger beer (can substitute ginger ale if necessary, but something with kick)
  • 1 oz. lime juice

Pour over ice into a copper mug and garnish with a lime wedge. The mug will grow chilly to the touch, and voila. You have your Moscow Mule experience.

And if the science of it doesn't excite the geek in you, we'll share that one of the early proponents of the drink was none other than the fabulous Julie Newmar. Presumably she thought the drink was purr-fect.
