As the days are getting longer, the evenings are getting warmer, and there is nothing better than getting a bit of fresh air from the great outdoors. Springtime usually encourages others to spend time outdoors and inspires them to start experimenting with their taste buds. Cooking, socialising, entertaining and trying out plenty of cocktail recipes usually puts everyone in a good mood, and this year, more than ever before, we will look forward to a spring full of positivity and the great outdoors.
So, in true A&S Home style, we wanted to prepare you for long, warm evenings of entertaining and drinking with one of our favourite cocktail recipes: the forever fashionable Moscow Mule. The recipe gives a well-balanced, spicy sweet flavour thanks to the additions of ginger beer and lime, and it is the perfect springtime sipping drink!
What's more, is at A&S Home, we have the perfect 10-piece Moscow Mule Set for you to enjoy with your friends. It has a beautiful, rose gold copper look to it, and plenty of characteristic dents and marks, just like a traditional Moscow Mule cup. The set also contains matching straws and a mug glass too, so you can sit in your garden, and sip your favourite cocktail in total style.
