The Mule has its origins in Manhattan in the 1940s. John G. Martin had a vodka distillery and Jack brewed his own ginger beer, both without much success. In a Manhattan bar, the gentlemen joined forces and came up with this drink. They called it ‘Moscow Mule’, referring to its origin. ‘Mule’ is an old-fashioned term for mixed drinks containing ginger, a citrus fruit and a liquor. It became a great success. A period entered the books as the ‘vodka craze’.
