The Moscow Mule is famous for a reason: It's a snap to make and easy to riff on. We're celebrating the cocktail's 75th anniversary with Smirnoff Vodka—they invented the drink, after all!—and this Friday, October 28, we'll kick off a week of Mules on Instagram.
If only every day could be filled with ice-cold Moscow Mules. The partnership between lime and ginger beer is enough to make us pine for 5 p.m., wishing happy hour was just a mere hour away. But we can dream, right?
This week, we want you to share your own Moscow Mules! Show us your cocktails by taking a photo and tagging it #f52grams and #SmirnoffMuleContest, and follow @SmirnoffUS on Instagram (if you do not already). We'll be regramming our favorites and giving out prizes every day, like copper Mule cups and cocktail shakers for daily favorites, and a cocktail kit full of goods from Smirnoff and our Shop for the big winner (who'll also be spotlighted in a Q&A with Food52!). (And psst—be sure to check out our terms and conditions.)
Show us your personal spin on the classic Moscow Mule starting Friday, October 28, on Instagram and we'll regram our favorites (and dole out bar tools as prizes, too.). Share your photos by Thursday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST— and then we'll pick a grand prize winner. Need the essentials to make your Mule? Head here for the original recipe, and to order ingredients. Please enjoy responsibly.
