          Are there really places that serve it in anything but a cooper mug?

            At the Tam O'Shanter in Atwater Village, they serve it in a pewter mug, just like their Pimm's Cup. The Pimm's Cup is better, in my opinion.

              I find that just wrong somehow.

              Sort of like if I went to Fisherman's Wharf and got one of those Sourdough Clam Chowder Bread Bowls and the chowder came nestled in a tortilla bowl shell.

            I've had a Moscow Mule at the Bouchon in Yountville...If it's the same one, it's the best I've ever had! Of course, it helped that it was over 100 degrees and I was sitting outside--is there a more refreshing drink to have in the middle of summer? :)

          3. Dunno about best, but I like the MM at Cole's.

              Same here... Can't go wrong with Varnish...

            2. I am a fan of the version at the Westside Tavern -- fresh ginger and soda in place of a premade ginger beer. Served in a glass. Find it much better than Bouchon's, the only advantage of which is the traditional copper mug.

                I'm not a MM drinker but I have dear friend who is and he loves the one at Westside Tavern, even w/o the copper mug.
