Recipe: Tijuana Donkey from Los Sombreros

A Moscow Mule was one of the first cocktails in American history. It was vodka mixed with ginger beer, served in a copper mug.

Complete with a culturally insensitive reference (to the Russian-imported liquor) and a convenient alliteration, the drink was a sensation. For the first time in this country, people drank vodka - the most popular drink around today - instead of Scotch or gin.
