STABBUR BEER GARDEN MALMÖ MULE

Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant, Sister Bay

Dating to 1941, when three liquor industry veterans invented it in Manhattan, the popularity of the Moscow Mule has surged in recent years. The drink is always served  in a copper mug, providing the unique taste that results from the interaction between lime juice (cit- ric acid) and pure copper. Stabbur Beer Garden introduced its own version of the venerable craft cocktail, the Malmö Mule, when the new outdoor bar opened next door to Al Johnson's Swedish Restau- rant in 2016. In addition to being truly delicious, Stabbur's version gives you a reason to learn to make your own blueberry simple syrup, a worthy skill for any host. Skål!
