Moscow Mule fans claim that a solid copper mug is the only way to successfully enjoy this delectable cocktail. Cocktail connoisseurs are fiercely protective of their drink's standards and history. In this short post, we'll go over some of the most crucial aspects to keep in mind when selecting the best hammered copper mug for your needs.
First things first. Have a clear budget in mind.
Finding the right hammered copper Moscow mule mugs is not just about looking for the cheapest mug you can find. It’s about finding a balance between your available budget and a combination of qualities that will impact how durable and beautiful your mugs are.
How big would you like your drinks to be? Start with the right size!
Although there are several different sizes you can try that go all the way from 1 gallon mugs down to small 2 oz copper shots; in our experience the 16 oz copper mugs hit the sweet spot in terms of practicality, thermal conservation properties and style.
Here’s what a pair of 16 oz copper mugs look like:
Focus on quality, not just price.
Although copper mugs are made in many different countries, some of the best handmade copper mugs on the market are made in India. Many copper mugs appear to be the same on the surface but there are many different types on the market, and many of them have layers of tin, nickel, aluminum, or stainless steel, even if they have an exterior copper coating.
Only copper is used to create the highest quality mugs! This gives them a vintage appearance while also ensuring the proper copper to citric acid reaction that gives Moscow Mules their characteristic flavor.
Being able to experience a Moscow mule the way it was originally intended is an important part of the authentic experience. It's not just about the flavor; it's also about how actual copper feels in your hands. It's difficult to explain, but there's something special about drinking from a one-of-a-kind copper cup created by talented artisans using authentic copper.
The type of handle a copper mug uses is something important to keep in mind as well. They are divided in two main categories: Riveted handles are difficult to clean, can gather residues, and frequently become loose over time. Welded handles are more durable and easier to clean. In other words, welded handles are much better in the long term.
Finally, keep in mind how the mugs will be used and for whom they’ll be purchased.
What will be the purpose of the copper mugs and for whom? Will they be used for special occasions? Will they also be used as kitchen or home decor? Will they be a gift for a special occasion such as a 7 year anniversary? Then, the way the copper mugs are presented and packaged will depend on the purpose they’ll serve.
