- PRODUCT INFORMATION
There’s a list of drinks that pair well with 100% copper mugs. From the obvious moscow mule, to margaritas, G and T’s, and Pimms to name a few.
Thanks to the properties in copper mugs, the drink tastes better and is kept cool longer. The ability of copper to hold temperature is well known, and does this better than other types of drinking vessels. This cooling effect works with any cold cocktail, especially those with lime or vodka ingredients. Drinking from 100% copper mugs also makes for the ultimate cocktail experience because copper triggers an oxidation process that enhances the aroma and taste of the drink.
If you know someone who’s a cocktail aficionado, then these are a must-have item!

COPPER CARE TIPS
Never put copper in the dishwasher, and never use steel wool or abrasive sponges or scrubbers to clean it, as they can scratch copper’s surface.
Do not to let the wine sit in the copper glasses for extended periods (i.e. overnight). Wine is acidic and will increase the rate of tarnishing.
After washing copper, dry it immediately; do not let it soak overnight. Water left on copper will increase the rate at which it tarnishes.
If a surface is not going to touch food, it is perfectly acceptable to let a greenish patina develop over time, if you like. However, if the copper is going to come into contact with food or drink, it should be polished periodically, or the verdigris can rub off in the food or drink.
Cleaning of your copper glassware can be done easily and with natural products found in your home. See our suggestions below.
Depending on the level of tarnish build up, follow the below steps until your copper has reclaimed its gleam:
First try using a damp cloth with just some dish-washing detergent on the tarnished areas.
Create a paste with vinegar and salt and rub onto the effected areas with a soft cloth and allowing it to sit for a few minutes before wiping clean.
For a deeper clean, create a paste from lemon and salt and work into the effected areas with a soft cloth, again, letting it sit for a few minutes.
Just as important as knowing how to clean copper the right way is how to dry it properly. Copper must always be rinsed and dried thoroughly after being cleaned. Any acid, abrasive, or water left on the piece will create uneven splotches and water marks. To get a glistening finish, use one soft cloth or kitchen towel to carefully dry and a second cloth to buff.
