The Moscow Mule kicked off the vodka craze in the United States during the 1950s, when gin was the preferred "white" (clear) liquor.

This recipe will result in a very lackluster cocktail. Use ginger BEER, not ginger ALE (and I recommend Cock 'n Bull Ginger Beer) for that proper ginger-spice bite. Then you will have prepared an awesome cocktail.
