People either love surprises or hate surprises. I, for one, hate surprises unless it is a gift. I love getting a gift that is a genuine surprise. When I was pregnant, my bestest friends surprised me with baby gifts during a regular get together. I had no clue!

This copper mugs were a fantastic birthday present from my husband. We normally don’t exchange gifts due to costs and we don’t actually NEED anything. Although I gave him quite a scare when I said, “I think I like rum and ginger beer more than moscow mules.” He had already ordered them and panicked that he got me the wrong thing.

It turned out to be a great present because we set out to find the best ginger beer for Moscow mules. It was a great theme for our at-home date nights!

After trying a few brands of ginger beer, we finally found the perfect one for Moscow mules: Fentiman’s ginger beer. It has the best tasting ginger by far as well as the right level of carbonation.

You can find gourmet ginger beer in the specialty soda aisle of your grocery store. Or you can order it online!

The Best Ginger Beer for Moscow Mules

Moscow mules taste best in a copper mug. I know, I know, I was a skeptic too but after I received the gift I understood what all the fuss was about!! When shopping for mugs make sure you look for solid copper mugs like these and not copper plated. They aren’t the same thing. The best part is you can get some great mugs at a reasonable price on Amazon.
