Hammered Moscow Mule Mug


I really love having a nice mug. One that screams that it's YOUR special mug! I have a personalized mug from an aquarium. It has lots of fish on it along with my name. What I really wanted was a unique mug that just screamed "Courtney's Mug" without literally having "Courtney" printed on the mug! I also wanted a mug that would keep my drink cold. I really dislike ending up with a warm beverage. I also dislike having to add MORE ice and watering down my drink!

I was really happy to be given the opportunity to review this unique hammered copper mug! As usual I went to Amazon to do a little "research" on the product, I found this.

Unlike many other copper mugs on Amazon, our Moscow Mule Mugs are constructed of 100% pure copper. There is no stainless steel or nickel lining. We apply a food-safe lacquer that resists tarnishing for lasting beauty and luster. The mug of choice when serving the infamous Moscow Mule--a cocktail made from a blend of vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice. The copper mug enhances the flavor and keeps the drink colder, longer.
Although there is debate about the beginnings of the Moscow Mule, there is no debate about its lasting legacy. Some say the inventors had a stroke of genius, while others claim it was simply created in an effort to go through a plentiful stash of both vodka and ginger beer. Whether it was a marketing effort or a stroke of luck, we're convinced it was the mug that made the mule. 
Care Instructions for a Long Lasting Moscow Mule Mug
After each use, clean with warm water and soft soap. No hard chemicals or detergents. Dry the copper mug with soft cloth. Do not leave your drink in mug overnight to avoid stains.
Not dishwasher safe.
Do not use in microwave.
Do not use with hot beverages.

There is also a nice recipe for the "Moscow Mule" beverage!

Immediately, I knew this was the perfect mug that screamed "Courtney's Mug".  I love getting packages in the mail, ever since I was a kid I loved UPS aka "the big brown truck". I always check my package tracking details every day. I do this not only because I am super excited to open the package, but I want to make sure I actually GET the package. I live in an apartment complex and just feel more comfortable being home to answer the door rather than letting my package sit on my welcome mat for who knows how long.

When I opened the package, the first thing that came to mind was,  the online photos do NOT do this product justice! I absolutely LOVE my mug! Since it states I cannot use hot beverages in this mug, I have not actually drank out of it. I cannot wait to use it though! I live in Florida, sooner than I blink my eyes it is going to be sweltering hot again and I will be enjoying my nice cold beverage in my mug!

You can buy the mug here. Oh and the tasty "Moscow Mule" recipe is there too!
