Rumour has it that the Moscow Mule was created way back in 1941, when the head of Smirnoff and LA bartender, Jack Morgan put their heads together to solve their shared sales problem. Morgan, owner of Hollywood’s Cock’n Bull restaurant, was struggling to sell his stash of ginger beer, while Smirnoff was searching for a way to sell vodka to a country full of Whiskey-drinking Americans. The solution? The pair mixed Smirnoff and ginger beer together, served it in a copper mug and called it a Moscow Mule.
The spicy cocktail became an instant classic, proving particularly popular with the Hollywood set before sweeping across America and around the world. Now curious cocktail-lovers can enjoy a 21st century twist on the classic drink in the comfort of their homes with a Smirnoff Los Angeles: Moscow Mule Cocktail Box.
These bespoke kits make incredible Christmas gifts, cost just £29.95 and contain all the ingredients needed to create two fruity Smirnoff Peach Twist Mule cocktails and two delicious Smirnoff Coconut Twist Mule cocktails. The kits also include a jigger to facilitate precision when it comes to mixing up these marvellous Mules, and two iconic copper Smirnoff Mule Mugs to serve them in style. And let’s not forget the perfectly paired Joe & Seph popcorn made for Smirnoff!
