Nothing says summer like backyard get-togethers with good conversation, and ice-cold cocktails. Our personal drink of choice during these warm summer evenings is a classic Moscow Mule, served in our oh-so-adorable Fiesta copper mugs (a must for Mules)! Our licensed mugs are found at Dillard’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kohl’s, and come in both full size (18 oz.), and miniature (2 oz.) for measuring out shots. Luckily for us, we have one of the best Moscow Mule makers in the biz right here at the factory: Uncle Pete!
As some of you may know, Homer Laughlin is a family owned and operated company. Pete is an in law of the family, with his wife, Jeannie, being a 4th generation owner. He works as VP in the company and helps to oversee the manufacturing of our beloved Fiesta Dinnerware. During family parties on their back porch, you can always count on Uncle Pete to bring his famous Moscow Mules to the fun. He’s been making this recipe for years, and now we’re sharing it with all of you!
Pete’s tips for this concoction are to always use copper mugs, and to make sure you get a good ginger beer that’s not too bitter, and not too sweet. His ginger beer of choice is Gosling’s. Now drink up and enjoy!
