We celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Moscow Mule with Smirnoff Vodka—they invented the drink, after all!—on #f52grams with Your best Moscow Mules! Check out some of our favorite spins on their Original Mule below!
For our latest #f52grams installment, we asked you to share your best Moscow Mules. And did you ever! Your photos of ice-cold cocktails had us pining for that punchy ginger beer-lime duo (as well as all your funky takes on it). We only wish we could've been there to share a drink with you. But, hey, we'll catch you at the next happy hour, right? Here are six of our favorite Mule 'grams:
A big congrats to the winner, whose grapefruit and rosemary Moscow Mule is bright, herby, and everything we want to drink now and always:

Red clover, red clover!
Red Clover Moscow Mule...bright, gingery goodness with splashes of citrus served in an icy cold copper mug...it’s simply the perfect refreshment. The addition of homemade red clover sun tea adds a special touch to this classic…and the mugs are just the cutest…find the recipe on Deco Tartelette. Cheers!

Sometimes there's nothing like a classic, no-frills drink:
I've been practicing my Moscow Mules in preparation for our Russian-themed NYE dinner, which is obviously going to involve a whole lotta vodka. Speaking of which, I have a ridiculously fun post coming to the blog tomorrow that fits with the NYE theme...can't WAIT to share it with y'all!!
