For the last few years, the Moscow mule has been having a bit of a moment. The drink was originally created in 1941 when an enterprising bartender who had ordered too much ginger beer decided to mix it with vodka – another drink that was hard to sell back then – and the result was a drink that he couldn’t keep in stock.

The mix of spicy ginger beer and vodka is one of the easiest and most refreshing cocktails you can make. But with a little more effort you can take this simple drink to the next level.

Via Karley Gomez of A Simple Pantry, here’s one of our favorite ways to the make the mule even more refreshing – with pineapple and cilantro. Just make sure to drink it out of its iconic copper mug.
