Top 5 Copper Mugs for Moscow Mules

Copper mugs give Moscow Mule drinks its distinctive look but it does not have to be used in mule drinks alone. It can also be used to serve drinks like classic margarita, mint julep, mezcal and other cocktails.

Because of health-threatening issues tied with copper mugs used to serve acidic drinks, artisans tried ways to solve it. Some artisans lined the copper mugs with food-grade lacquer. Others lined the mugs with nickel or stainless steel coating to keep the beauty of the mugs without sacrificing health.
