Where can I find a good Moscow Mule?

Can't find them anywhere... please advise! I had the audacity to enquire at Nic's Martini Lounge recently, but they didn't seem to care that I tried to order something not off their exquisite martini menu....

  1. RIP the Cock 'N Bull Tavern where the Moscow Mule (vodka, lime and Ginger beer) was invented.

    The problem is going to be finding a bar that stocks ginger beer. I found a recipe that uses ginger liqueur, but there's no fizz:

    Ther's a chance the bartender at Musso and Franks' could make one for you ... and if not, maybe the Pig 'n Whistle across the street.

    Musso & Frank Grill
    6667 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    Pig N' Whistle
    6714 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    1. The mandrake makes a good one and its very reasonable priced. Definitely a young crowd though.
