8 steps to happiness: how to prepare your classic Moscow Mule cocktail

Step 1: Prepare the limes

Go on your journey by slicing half the lime into four juicy pieces. Treat yourself to this moment and feel the freshness and tangy aroma of the lime as you cut it... Your anticipation of the refreshing Moscow Mule cocktail increases in unexpected ways even before the cool drink hits the cup - and makes every moment an experience.

Step 2: Crush the limes in the copper cup

Place the quartered lime in the copper cup, which absorbs the heat from your hand as you crush the lime pieces.

Experience how the juicy lime juice combines with the pure copper to create a unique aroma that seems to sing a song to your nose.

Step 3: Add ice cubes

Complement the refreshing aroma by sliding crackling ice cubes into the copper cup.

Do you hear the tantalizing sound of the ice hitting the cup? Can you feel the cup getting colder and colder - promising a refreshing coolness that you will soon enjoy?

Step 4: Pour in the vodka

Gently pour 70 ml of vodka into the copper cup. Let the alcohol flow gently over the ice and lime pieces as the sharp smell of the vodka mingles with the freshness of the lime, creating an exciting, heady aroma that will stir your senses in anticipation of an unforgettable taste experience.

Step 5: Add ginger beer

Slowly pour 150 ml of ginger beer into the cup and let yourself be seduced by the rising bubbles and the spicy scent of ginger.

Can you feel how the ginger beer gives your cocktail a tangy note that makes the refreshing experience even more tempting?

Step 6: Stir the cocktail

Take a copper spoon and stir your cocktail gently so that the flavors of the lime, vodka and ginger beer blend harmoniously.

Watch as the ice cubes clink in the cup, renewing the cool promise of a refreshing drink, while the aroma of your cocktail intensifies and heightens the anticipation of the first sip.

Step 7: Add cucumber slices

Cut two thin, cool slices of cucumber and place them carefully on the rim of the copper cup.

The fresh, green color of the cucumber complements the vibrant green of the lime and gives your cocktail a refreshing, crisp note that stimulates your visual senses while your nose perceives special scents.

Step 8: Enjoy the cocktail

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy your carefully prepared, ice-cold Moscow Mule cocktail in a copper cup.

Lift the mug to your lips and let the pure copper gently touch your skin as you take your first refreshing sip.

Feel the tingling combination of lime, vodka and ginger beer dancing on your tongue while the aroma of ginger tickles your nose.

Enjoy the crisp crunch of the cucumber slices between your teeth and the refreshing, cool sensation they leave in your mouth.

Let the coolness of the copper cup and the tangy mix of flavors in your cocktail enchant you as you embark on another journey of refreshment and invigoration.
