The Moscow Mule is an unassailable summer cocktail that can instantly make even the sleaziest people a touch classier. It’s simple to make (vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, voilà!) and easily boasts the best barware specifically designed for drinking that libation. While there might be a scientific reason for sipping mules from a copper mug—the metal supposedly adds an extra chill to the already cold booze—mostly I just like the way it makes me feel while holding it in my hand, like I’m a ratchet king guzzling from my ratchet chalice.
That’s why I’d like to be friends with the ladies in this Instagram photo who are gleefully holding a GIANT-ASS Moscow Mule mug. Just look at this bad boy:
Meet the Mega Mule, which weighs in at a whopping 10 pounds and is filled with 164 ounces of bad decisions (including 18 ounces of Belvedere Vodka alone). According to Delish, this concoction of epic proportions is the brainchild of the folks at Dream Hotels in NYC. Head to one of their properties, including the rooftop of the Dream Midtown in Times Square, to witness and defeat this beast in the flesh.
You have $185 (pre-tax and tip) to blow, right?
Before I go, I feel like it’s my duty to tell you that you should probably bring along a couple friends—five, 10, 30—to help tackle the Mega Mule. I don’t recommend attempting to drink the entire thing by yourself in one sitting, even though that would be an impressive accomplishment and probably the proudest you’d ever feel in your life.
