Champagne Mule

This Champagne Mule cocktail is definitely going to get the party going…and keep it going as long as the champagne keeps pouring!

I love a good moscow mule, especially when it’s served up in the traditional copper mugs. It almost doesn’t even taste the same unless it’s in a copper mug, right? It’s weird how that works.

So when I found these copper champagne glasses I knew exactly what I needed to make – my twist on a moscow mule, one with champagne…

There are a couple of thing we always seem to have in our liquor cabinet or refrigerator. Champagne, wine, vodka and whiskey or bourbon. Of course we have a full bar that’s always pretty stocked but those are the staples.

Oh, and limes. We always have a drawer full of lemons and lime in the fridge. You have to have the citrus too, if it’s for a squeeze in a drink or just for garnish. People underestimate the need for garnishes on a drink. My feeling is that they don’t look right without one – I think with a garnish a drink even tastes better too, just like using the right glass.

Having the ingredients on hand made mixing up these cocktails for taste testing a breeze. All I had to do was grab the Ketel One Vodka, run outside to clip some fresh mint and I was on my way.

This Champagne Mule follows a moscow mule recipe except instead of ginger beer I’m using champagne. So it’s the vodka, champagne, fresh lime and a splash of ginger liquor just to add that ginger flavor.

If you’re doing these for a party you can make a mixture of the vodka, lime juice and ginger liquor ahead of time to have it all ready to go, then just top off with champagne when your guests arrive.

If you’re making these at home just for you and the wife like I did…then adding it to a couple of glasses is just as easy as making it ahead.

You should get whatever champagne or prosecco you like to drink for these Champagne Mules but I chose to get a dryer champagne (a brut) so it didn’t turn out to be a sweet cocktail. But I’ll tell you, the combination of champagne with a good vodka like Kettle One and fresh lime – it’s a definitely a party in a glass.

So to answer your question – no, you don’t have to run out and buy these awesome looking champagne flutes, a regular champagne glass will do fine – but if you happen to come across some I say grab a bunch!

    Can you tell me where you found the glasses? I can’t seem to find them anywhere online and I would love to do this cocktail for my upcoming wedding!

    Hi Dan,

    These look great. I found your site because my wife pinned a photo of those glasses, but we have been unable to locate them online. Do they have a brand name? I would love to pick up a set for the holidays, so any info that you can give me would be great (did a search for home goods, but that did not seem to yield results).

    1. Jennifer, I’m so sorry, I should have bought all of these when I first saw them. There’s literally no vendor name on the bottom. And I’ve contacted Home Goods and they aren’t very helpful. Sorry about that!
