Drinking Moscow Mules May Be Killing You

Subscribe to 107.9 LITE FM on

I love drinking Moscow Mules. Hell, I love the Dutch Mule, the Mexican mule, the Kentucky Mule – I love almost all the Mule drinks that are served in the copper cups. However, according to a warning, those mule drinks may be slowly killing us.

Moscow mules are one of the trendiest drinks of the past few years, and part of the appeal is because they come in those sweet COPPER MUGS.  I mean, those DO look good on Instagram and they make everything super cold. Unfortunately, they might be KILLING YOU.

According to Iowa’s Alcoholic Beverages Division, you’re really not supposed to have copper come in contact with acidic food or drinks and Moscow mules are definitely acidic.

That means it can absorb just a little of the copper in the mug and pass it along to you.  So if you drink them a lot of them, you could wind up with copper poisoning and that can cause fatigue, fainting, and depression among other things.

So you should probably think about limiting how many Moscow mules you drink  or if you’ve gotta have them, drink them out of regular glasses once in a while which won’t taste as good, but at least you’ll still be alive right?

Your Moscow Mule may Be Poisoning you
