PLAZA DEL TORO typically sees their hosts go with a classic Moscow Mule since they have these gorgeous copper mule mugs at their venue. What’s awesome about those is that you can have them made with vodka for a Moscow Mule, bourbon and call it a Kentucky Mule or tequila for a Jalisco Mule so you can accommodate more liquor preferences for your group!
