Drink Carefully

Moscow Mules have become a major thing in the three years or so since I first encountered one in a little bar in San Francisco.  Now you can buy copper mugs at the grocery store, to say nothing of places like Cost Plus World Market.

And while I’m normally a fan of authenticity, be careful if you’re planning on drinking a lot of Moscow Mules from those mugs.  Unless they’re lined with another metal on the inside, copper could be leaching into your drink.   I suspect you’re OK if you don’t drink a ton of these, and if you don’t let your drink sit around for hours at a time before consuming it.
