Copper has been used for millennia as a way to hold a drink, to take a drink. In ancient times, the people of Ireland enjoyed their drink by way of a copper goblet called an “escra”, and countless yogis of India used copper cups. American colonists drank from copper mugs, The Virginia tankard, to name one, dating from the mid-1600’s, and what was called a “flaggon” with its generous 3-cup volume. Fast forward to the 1940’s and the Moscow Mule came to town. A beverage, or shall we say a “cocktail” with a bite that insisted on its own copper mug. And what we now have, is the Copper Mule.
