We're super pumped to be teaming up with Smirnoff in celebration of the Moscow Mule anniversary! It's not often that we bring you guys drink videos but filming this beginners guide was a great reminder of how important it is to know your way around a good mixed drink (of course if you're of the legal age!) I've seen too many people get nervous at social gathering when its comes to making a great mixed drink, but it doesn't have to be that way! watch this video and learn the basics to give you the confidence next time you have to mix up a drink! - #SmirnoffPartner @SmirnoffUS #TheOriginalMule
