'Merican Mule introduces Moscow Mule in can
'Merican Mule has expanded the distribution of canned cocktail Moscow Mule across Los Angeles and Orange County in the US.
The cocktail contains 7% alcohol-by-volume (ABV), and is a combination of vodka, natural ginger, and lime.
'Merican Mule's chief executive officer Dean Mahoney said: "You no longer need to go to a bar or restaurant to have a Moscow Mule. In fact, our company slogan is Copper Mug optional.
"Ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages just have not been good over the past decade. We seek to change that.
"We've achieved amazing taste, second to none, due to our patience during development and caution around selected ingredients."
The product will soon be available for purchase in larger liquor store chains, groceries, bars, and restaurants.
'Merican Mule chief marketing officer Steve Pawlik said: "When you think about it, finding a well-made Moscow Mule isn't that easy.
"You pay $10 to have one made at a bar. Come to find out, that bar is using cheap ginger beer and low quality vodka. It is never consistent from one place to another. And when you want to make it at home, it is difficult to replicate the way bartenders do. We saw an opportunity to give cocktail-lovers something convenient, cost-effective, and cool."
The drink is currently retailed as a single 12oz can, or as a pack of four.
