Champagne Moscow Mule

This Champagne Moscow 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.

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

This Champagne Moscow 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 making these champagne cocktails 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, easy as that.

Buy 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 Aelie! I found them at Home Goods. I’m not sure what area you’re from but it’s a local housewares store in my area.

    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).

      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!

    LOVE THE RECIPE!! INSTEAD OF KETTLE ONE, I USE TITO’S VODKA & YOU CAN ALSO TRY GREY GOOSE OR CIROC VODKA PAIRED WITH A GREAT CHAMPAGNE!! THE COOPER CHAMPAGNE FLUTES I FOUND THIS SUMMER ONLINE @ AMAZON WITH ALL THE OTHER PURE COPPER MUGS, STRAWS & MARTINI GLASSES I ORDERED BECAUSE I WANTED TO TREAT MYSELF TO THE ENTIRE PURE COPPER LINE INCLUDING THE SHAKER & SHOT GLASSES! THANKS FOR SHARING THE RECIPE!!
