"This cocktail's origin has nothing to do with Moscow or mules, but after a few sips of this vodka, ginger beer, and lime concoction, no one will care."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

The brand / quality of ginger beer makes a big difference. With a 'spicy' to balanced ginger beer, I like to add a splash of simple syrup. I really like Bundaberg, or Seattle's Rachel's Ginger Beer. You can skip the syrup if you pick a sweeter ginger brew.
Fill your cocktail shaker with a handful of ice, pour in your favorite vodka, slice and squeeze the lime right in there, add the splash of simple syrup, and shake away. Pour the chilled / strained mix into your copper mug (but a glass timber can suffice), then top it with cold ginger beer and serve.
Very good balance of sweet, sour, spicy (and boozy)! Watch out though...they go down too easy!
Use premium Russian vodka, and there's your Moscow. Deliciously dangerous.
Not QUITE as tasty in paper cups as in copper mugs, but still a pretty great way to end the work week and kick off a weekend. We used Bundaberg ginger beer. It's wodka (with a W, as my grandpa would say) with a kick!
It's good with blenheim ginger ale, if you don't have a ginger beer. I also enjoy it with Tito's vodka bc it has sweet finish and it's made in the US.
Favorite summer drink!
