There are so many fun gift ideas that you can buy for the Moscow Mule lover in your life. There’s a handful of themed gifts but you can also buy fun barware to make cocktailing at home extra fun.
This post was originally published on November 21, 2019, and has now been updated with new gift ideas for Moscow Mule Lovers.
I think I figured out why I love Moscow Mules so much. It’s because of the copper! Those copper mugs are just so pretty! OK, also the flavor.
But the mugs don’t hurt anything. I know I’m not the only one who loves these classic cocktails so I created this fun gift guide. These are the perfect gift ideas for the Moscow Mule lover.
You can play up the copper aspect and get matching bar tools or you can focus on the ingredients you need to make the best mule.
Whether you choose just one or two of the smaller items to pair with something else or choose several to create a gift basket you can’t go wrong with these Moscow Mule gifts.
Moscow Mule Gift Ideas
Whether they want to make up their own recipes or just jot down ideas for ones they want to try next, this notebook will totally come in handy.
Cheers Cocktail Napkins Cute cocktail napkins are a great thing to pair with Moscow Mule gifts. These cute napkins have metallic writing that would go nicely with copper mugs filled with a delicious Bourbon Moscow Mule.
Make Your Own Ginger Beer Syrup This concentrated ginger syrup is perfect for those cocktail aficionados that like to make everything from scratch. This would allow them to make their own ginger beer which is a key ingredient for Moscow Mules.
Mini Bitters Set The perfect finishing touch for a Moscow Mule is bitters. This fun set includes 8 mini bottles in classics like orange, aromatic, Orleans, and celery, but it also contains some fun options too like chocolate, lavender, and firewater.
Bitters lends a really nice bit of aroma and a depth of flavor to the drinks. Bitters also make a good almost cocktail.
Muddler and Mixing Spoon Set There are a few things that people don’t tend to buy for themselves and that includes pretty bar tools. I think most people have the basics, but there are many pieces that can easily be upgraded.
This muddler and mixing spoon set in copper are pretty and useful for the home bar.
Cocktail Bar Spoon This copper bar spoon is a great gift topper for the Moscow Mule lover. Shakers are not required for mule cocktails (in fact if you shake up ginger beer there’s a chance that your kitchen may end up covered in it).
But a copper bar spoon is the perfect thing to mix your cocktail.
Moscow Mule Cocktail Ornament Remind them it’s almost happy hour with this cute Moscow Mule ornament. I love to gift themed ornaments that fit the recipient perfectly.
Another cute gift idea would be to pair this with a gift card to a local restaurant and plan a friend date for Moscow Mules with your friend.
Copper Straws These copper straws are so dang cute! And they instantly make everything feel a little fancier.
Moscow Mule Tea Towel This tea towel with the Moscow Mule Recipe will come in handy for the mule newbie. Also maybe if they’ve had a few too many mules to remember what to do…Plus the art is cute and would look good in any kitchen.
Today’s Forecast T-Shirt I would totally wear this on the Fourth of July. A Moscow Mule is my signature drink that day. This is perfect for your friends who can’t wait to get to the weekend for their next mule.
Copper Cream for Moscow Mule Mugs I love my copper mugs but after one washing they start losing their luster and get little black spots. Copper cream would be a great add-on gift idea for the Moscow Mule lover.
Moscow Mule Gift Sets
A Moscow Mule lover will most likely have their own copper mugs but they can never have enough!
The Moscow Mule Gift Set Basket by Wine Country is the ultimate gift for Moscow Mule lovers and it’s an easy option if you’re pressed for time. The set includes everything they’ll need to make their favorite cocktail including snacks that pair well and it comes in a gorgeous metal box!
Moscow Mule Copper Mug Set with Spoon, Straws, Wood Coasters, and Copper Shot Glass There are tons of different types of copper mugs out there. I love this straight-sided set that is a little bit taller, and not as round as the traditional mugs.
If you want to pick up a traditional, handmade copper mug, I love the ones from Moscow Muled! They are great quality and packaged up perfect for gifting!
Copper Pitcher This copper pitcher means you can serve your favorite Moscow Mule recipe by the pitcher! It’s really pretty and has the same textured outside as a lot of the copper mugs. This would be a really nice gift for someone who you know already has mugs.
Tips and Tricks
- Add mini bottles of vodka to their Christmas stocking to complete the gift.
- Allow the recipient to open their Moscow Mule gift set on Christmas Eve to enjoy before bed.
- Instead of buying a set, create your own Moscow Mule gift basket. Include copper mugs, limes, ginger beer, a nice quality vodka, and some fresh mint (if you can!). Add in any of the gifts, bar spoons, or tea towel above to complete your basket!
Frequently Asked Questions
I love the idea of adding food items or restaurant gift cards to your gift basket. Both Asian food and seafood pair well with the flavors in a Moscow Mule. Rather than providing fresh items (especially if you’re sending this gift long distance!), tuck in a gift card to an amazing restaurant so they can order take-out.
The short answer is they don’t. But they are traditionally served in a copper mug because copper is wonderful at conducting temperature. This means your drink stays colder longer!
I like this Ginger beer and have used it several times in my recipes, but Bundaburg Ginger Beer is also a good option.
