This gal is a fan of copper. I love the warm color; it really calls to me. Fortunately, these Copper Mule Mugs, have really hit the scene and are so popular now. They are everywhere. No, you do not have to drink a Moscow Mule to own one, lol. Any drink will do. In matter of fact, it turns out drinking water out of a copper cup is very healthy for you. If you fill your cup the night before and drink the water in the morning it will have not only killed off some bacteria in the water, but adds some of the copper goodness to it. You can of course just drink water out of it throughout the day too. It’s called Ayurveda. Here is a quote from one article I read: “Scientifically speaking, when water is stored in a copper vessel for over eight hours, very small quantities of copper get dissolved in this water. This process is called “oligodynamic effect” and has the ability to destroy a wide range of harmful microbes, molds, fungi etc. due to the toxic effect it has on living cells.” Now, let’s talk about the Moscow Mule. It brought about the copper mug as it’s drinking vessel years, and years ago. The Moscow Mule is a Ginger beer concoction. A basic recipe I know is as follows:
8oz Ginger Beer
1oz Lime Juice
Pour over ice and serve. You can also garnish it with a lime slice.
Serving a drink in a real copper mug, like in this pure copper set from Copper Natural on Amazon, is pretty impressive, and a definite conversation starter. I love this set. It arrives with each much wrapped in a soft fabric, and I love the copper colored spoons they give you in the set. The spoons are a great addition. They state they are stainless steel, so you won’t have to worry about any rusting. They have just been plated in copper. The mugs are 16oz in size as well. I love the hammered texture. You will eventually get a ding and or dent in your mug, and the hammered texture hides these well. These cups are great to serve any drink. I live by the coast and enjoy islandy drinks. So, they contain vodka, but no ginger beer, lol. These mugs are made quite well. They are thick and sturdy, not bendy at al. They are comfortable to hold onto as well. I do want to war you that copper cops pick up the temperature of the drink inside it. So, ice cold drinks make the mug ice cold, and they don’t recommend hot drinks, because the cup gets really hot. I love hot mugs, since I am always cold, lol. So if you choose to serve a hot toddy, make sure you grasp it by the handle, not the body of the mug. They even give you a link to download a free ebook with drink recipes, if you want it. There are so many drink recipes online nowadays as well. The spoons they included in the set are nice and long, and help you stir your drink in style. For care of these mugs, I highly recommend hand washing them. It only takes a second to do, and it will help ensure it’s beautiful finish longer. Copper does change its patina over time. I love that with copper. This really is an affordable and gorgeous set.
