All mule fans want a copper mug for themselves. But there are many Moscow Mule copper Mug manufacturers. And they produce copper mugs with different volumes and styles, of course prices are equally unlike.
How to choose a best quality copper mug
Best copper mugs has some unique characteristics and we judge them from these features:
Copper Mug Material
Solid unlined copper mug is traditionally recommended for Moscow Mule. Copper plated steel should be avoided. If you have safety concern about copper toxin a nickel lined mug maybe an alternative to compensate.
Weight of Copper Mugs
Just remember copper is heavy metal so does a good cooper mug. There are tons of hundreds of copper mugs on Amazon waiting for you. And they all claimed to be made of solid copper but none of them have ever mentioned the thickness of their products. How can we pick up right ones that will give more pleasure. You should choose heavier ones.
Pay more attention to the copper mug handle. A good solid copper mug should have a solid copper handle riveted to its wall. Brass handle is acceptable but again copper plated steel should be avoided. It has no ability to give you lips and hands the same cool feeling, what you want a copper gives, at the same time.
We have already done that for you the copper mugs table below are based on these criteria. You only need to consider volume, style or the painting finish outside to choose the right one for the incoming summer cocktail season.
