For most of us, a refreshing quaff is all it takes to drive away anxieties. And, what could be better than a mix of your favorite vodka with ginger ale and pinch of lemon to lighten up taste buds? Yes, I am talking about Manhattan's famous Moscow Mule cocktail. Considered as the cocktalian masterpiece of early 50s, Moscow Mule was first introduced by John G. Martin - an executive at the Heublein drinks company.
