dirty little secret
Honestly, it’s more of a dirty little tip that I have for you today.
It’s no secret that one of my favorite cocktails to make is Mules. Everyone knows that Mules are best served in copper cups. They’re hip, on trend and they keep the cocktail ice-cold for a very long time.
They most recent Mules I made were for Steve and Tram’s St. Patrick’s Day Dinner. Here are links to some of the Mule recipes I’ve posted:
My collection of copper mugs has grown to 20. Most are vintage. Seventeen of the twenty are as shiny as a new penny. They stay that way because they are sealed.
Sadly, the sealant has come off the other three and they tarnish quickly. But there is a fix for that.
Vinegar + Salt!
Just make a little paste and rub away. The tarnish is removed and they are shiny as quick as a whistle.
After and before! Obviously, this doesn’t just work on copper Mule cups, use this tip for all tarnished copper.
Have a wonderful weekend!
