The Perfect Foods to Pair with Your Moscow Mule


A QUICK-AND-EASY GUIDE


We’re all well aware by now that drinking on an empty stomach can lead to a not-so-stellar evening, but did you know that exactly what you eat with your Moscow Mule can also lead to an amazingly unforgettable experience?

That’s right, just like a juicy grilled steak perfectly complements a rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, there are many foods that will bring out the most intricate, spice-forward flavors of a Moscow Mule.

Here are a few of our favorites to get you started:

ASIAN FOOD

Ginger and lime are often the stars of the show in Thai, Vietnamese and other Asian cuisines, and when a drink and a cuisine have common core ingredients such as these, they’ll undoubtedly be perfect pairings to enjoy together. The cooling effects of a Moscow Mule served in a 100% copper mug also provide respite from any spiciness in a dish, another familiar characteristic of this type of food. Here are some delicious Asian recipes that will pair perfectly with your next round of mules:

SEAFOOD

With a fairly neutral taste to begin with, seafood is a great protein to spice up in whatever way you see fit. This means you can easily make it complement the flavors in your Moscow Mule. You can create a two-for-one and incorporate Asian flavors into your seafood dish, or you can keep the flavors fresh and light to really let the mule flavors shine. Here are some great suggestions to whet your palate!
