The Best Promotional Copper Mugs For Moscow Mules



It’s been said that the mug makes the mule. If you’re mixing up Moscow mules, there’s nothing like promotional copper mugs to keep the drink ice cold – and your logo front and center.

If you haven’t noticed, the Moscow mule is the cocktail du jour. It’s a snappy blend of vodka, ginger beer, and lime, and it’s always served in a copper mug. In fact, it’s that telltale mug that makes the drink so easy to spot.

A Look Back

The story behind the Moscow mule is an interesting one. In the 1940s, two distributors – one selling ginger beer and the other selling Smirnoff vodka – found themselves in a pinch. No one was buying their products. At the time, people much preferred gin and whiskey.

So the distributors, in what turned out to be a genius move, experimented with combining the vodka and ginger beer. They added some lime, and voila – the first Moscow mule

The Role Of The Mug

The tale goes that a third partner joined in. Needing to offload a surplus of copper mugs that wouldn’t sell, the trio brought their concoction and mugs to bartenders far and wide.

The cocktail and mugs were a hit, and the rest is history. The Moscow mule is credited with reviving the vodka industry in the U.S., tripling the sales of vodka in the 1950s.

Fast forward a few decades, and the simple, sweet cocktail has once again gone mainstream – and real connoisseurs know that it has to be served in a copper mug. A Collins glass (or any other glass) just won’t do. The mug, does, in fact, make the mule. The copper keeps it perfectly chilled, making it a must for this particular drink.custom restaurant promos

Clamoring For Copper

As the drink continues to surge in popularity once again, copper mugs have become a hot commodity at bars and restaurants. People can’t get enough of the copper mugs, and they’re starting to swipe them from right under bartenders’ noses.

Retailers can’t keep up with demand. At places like Crate & Barrel and Sur La Table, copper mugs are flying off shelves, and the stores have to scramble to keep them in stock.

So, what does this mean for marketers? Now’s the time to customize copper mugs for your brand.

There’s no better drinkware of the moment than promotional copper mugs. They’re trendy, people want them, and they’re a fantastic opportunity to put your logo in the limelight.

Recipe: Moscow Mule Cocktail

3 oz. ginger beer 1 ½ oz. vodka Fresh lime juice from half a lime

Build Customer Goodwill With Promotional Products

Promotional products foster customer goodwill (positive attitudes and feelings)
toward a company and its salespeople. This study, completed by Baylor University
in 1992, involved a textbook publisher sending 4,000 educators either: (1) a pocket
calculator plus a letter, (2) a lower-priced highlighter pen plus a letter, or (3) a
letter only.
• Customers who received a promotional product expressed more good
will toward the company and its salespeople than those who did not
receive a promotional product.
• The attitudes of those who received the calculator were consistently more positive than for those who received the less expensive highlighter pen.
• Customers who received the pocket calculator or the highlighter pen rated the proficiency and ability of the sales representatives as 34% and 16%
(respectively) higher than those who received only the thank you letter.
• On questions relating to the customers’ personal feelings toward the company and its sales representatives, customers who received the calculator
scored 52% higher than the letter only group (see table above).

The Advantages Of Promotional Products

Many companies and organizations use advertising promotional products and promotional items to help to sell their products or services. This is a great approach to the public, as there are a number of advantages to promotional products and promotional items. If you are considering promotional products or corporate gifts for your business or organization it is imperative to remember the three crucial Cs cost, control, and connection. These three Cs are the main reasons why promotional products and business gifts work so well in most situations!

* Cost: First and foremost, promotional products and advertising corporate gifts can help your business because they are cost-effective. Items like pens, key chains, and mouse pads bearing your company name are not pricey, but they provide lot of advertising. While some may choose to spend thousands of dollars on a television commercial that only runs one month, you can spend thousands on promotional products instead for unlimited advertising. Why? Well, when someone takes one of your pens, featuring your logo and phone number, he or she may keep it for a long time. Although they may not need your services right now, in three years they might, and since they’ve saved your pen, they know just who to call! Imagine also how your advertising power will multiply as your pens get forgotten at the bank, dropped at the drycleaners, and lent to loved ones.

* Control: Promotional products and promotional gifts also allow you to control how people view your brand and marketing message. For example, if your doctor’s office is seen as best for older adults, you can use promotional products like mini beach balls to show that you’re child friendly as well. This is especially crucial when you’re re-branding your business or organisation. Promotional products and advertising gifts give you control to choose the exact layout of your logo and address, as well as give you the control to choose the specific colors. There are literally hundreds of promotional products to consider, so you can choose what best fits your company, organization its target market and the specific promotional message you have in mind.

* Connection: Lastly, one of the main advantages to promotional products is that they allow you to connect to your customers in a unique and memorable way. Products and services that sell are ones where consumers feel like you’re looking out for their best interests. Offering promotional products is a value to your customers. Everyone like a free gift, even if it is something as small as a coaster! Remember, you can also use your promotional products to draw in customers at a convention or fair booth. If you have the best give-a-ways, people will want to check out your booth, and as you’re giving the a free promotional product, you can do a short sales pitch.

The advantages to promotional products go on and on. Consider them for your business, because they can truly give you the sales boost you need.

It’s the latest.It’s the greatest.But is it a waste of money?

Promotional items are a proven and valuable way to increase tradeshow effectiveness.matches your product benefit.swamp your staff with unqualified leads!

However, the hottest new promotional product on the market can be a complete waste of money, and even worse, your time at a tradeshow if you don’t have good metrics for evaluating ROI.

When selecting promotional items for your tradeshow booth you need to carefully examine what you really want to accomplish at the show. For example:

Are you looking to increase brand awareness?
Do you want to give product demos and collect leads?
Are you looking to close sales?

Each outcome should determine the kind of ad specialty item you use and your method for delivery.

Let’s assume that you need to increase brand awareness for a new product and are attending a targeted show where almost everyone is a realistic prospect.

In this case, to increase booth traffic, you might want to offer attendees the latest and greatest ad specialty item that

Now, what happens if your company’s product is already established and your goal is to give demos to qualified buyers? That same booth driver can

Even worse, if you are looking to the show to drive revenue, your team is now wasting time with bad prospects and losing valuable sales opportunities!

Try this instead. If you are looking to give product demos, you might want to choose a higher-end product and pre/post market to attendees. Get them to schedule a demo time and have the item on hand to give them after the demo is over.

If you are looking to close sales, consider a separate meeting room and promotional product that will set the tone for the discussion. Often times you may want to present the item to them on location and offer to either ship it or hold on to it until the event’s close.
