100% Copper Mug for Moscow Mule Review #purecopper

When I want a cold drink, I want a C*O*L*D drink! That's why I like to make my spritzers, cocktails, and other drinks in a 100% pure copper mug. 

The copper keeps any drink cold from start to finish!

The 100% pure copper mug from the Pure Copper Brand is perfect for cold drinks of all kinds.  It is especially famous for the Moscow Mule. 


Pour 2 ounces of vodka into the copper mug
Squeeze in juice of 1/2 lime
Add ice
Fill with 5 ounces of ginger beer (NOT ginger ale), stir gently, and garnish with a lime wedge.

No nickel, tin, or steel! Our mugs are PURE copper, as your Moscow Mule deserves! This means NO plating, NO lining, and NO alloying. Just solid, pure copper. WHY? Copper has amazing properties which keep your drink COLD, enhance flavor, and provide health benefits. If it's not genuine copper, what can you expect? Go for the real deal - get the full experience. BONUS RECIPE CARDS - for the mule fanatics!
Not just any cocktail recipes. These recipe cards include everything from the original classic Moscow Mule, to exotic and refreshing experiments! We're obsessed with mules. These recipe cards are our own creations - our favorites! The pictures will lure you down our step-by-step recipes to Mule greatness. Includes the MULE-JITO (see what we did there?), the MEXICAN MULE, and more well-guarded secrets! We're always adding more new recipes, join the conversation!

You'll see that 16 oz is the perfect size when you get it in your hand! Our design has a welded handed, which means no ugly rivets (LEAKY!). Copper does age, but we use a FOOD-SAFE lacquer to help preserve the aesthetic of the mugs. These mugs are handmade by humans, so there may be minor blemishes, but they only add to the character! An additional CARE card is included in the box.

If you haven't felt the way a real copper mug frosts up, you're seriously missing out! There's nothing more refreshing on a hot day! Or any day, let's face it...


We stand by our products and are always here to help.

For the very best, coldest drinks this summer, I highly recommend the amazing 100% pure copper mug from the Pure Copper Brand.

Brillante Manual Coffee Grinder Review #brillantecoffeegrinders

CAN I ADJUST THE GRIND SIZE AND IS IT CONSISTENT? - Yes, the grinder adjusts quickly and easily to grind for multiple brewing methods such as: espresso, pour over, french press/plunger, percolator or Turkish. You'll be able to get a consistent grind quality that will improve the taste of your coffee.

HOW FAST DOES IT GRIND? - That depends on the person grinding (of course!) however you can expect to grind about 38 grams of coffee to pour over level fineness in 1 min 20 sec. Stated by approximate volume that is about 6 tablespoons of whole beans ground in 1 min 20 sec (enough to serve 2 people)

IS IT LOUD? - No, it's really quite tame. You'll find it MUCH quieter than grinding with an electric grinder and it's even better than some of the other popular manual grinders.

IS IT HARD TO CRANK? - Actually it's pretty easy. The grinder is slim for easy gripping and the crank handle is long enough to give you good leverage for a smooth and easy grind. Some of the difficulty depends on your coffee beans but the grinder does it's part to make things go smoothly.

WILL I LOVE IT? - You love your coffee which means...your coffee grinder should make you happy as well. If it doesn't or you have some problem don't worry since we back your purchase with great no-quibble, customer service because we're serious about making sure you're pleased.
I started buying whole bean coffee a while back and love to use a grinder to get the deepest, richest flavour from them.

Every grinder offers subtle differences and this one, I've found, is most suited to creating the perfect grind for Espresso, Turkish, and French Press coffees.

The Brillante Coffee Grinder is tall (7 1/2 inches) light-weight (9 ounces), and completely portable! I much prefer this grinder for travel as there is no glass to break and just a few parts that are easily put together and taken apart.

The hand-crank is long enough to give you good leverage when grinding.  The blades cut the beans evenly.

The body is stainless steel, won't corrode or rust, and cleans up quickly and easily.

There are several settings available from very fine to large thus ensuring that you will always be able to get exactly the grind and taste that you want.

#pastryscraper Orblue Stainless Steel Pastry Scraper and Cutter

If you love to bake, you need a pastry scraper / dough cutter.  A knife can cut, of course, but can only do half the job.  You need an all-purpose tool: cut, scrape, measure, and fold.   The wonderful Stainless Steel Pastry Scraper and Cutter from Orblue does it all!

*Scrape and chop bread dough with this stainless steel pastry cutter.
Your knife is not as good as a bench scraper to chop and transport food off the cutting board and into the pan.

*Good Grip - Comfortable non slip rubber handle absorbs pressure. Hold your metal pastry chopper and note how comfortable it is.

*Easy cleanup - Cooking can't get any easier. This pastry scraper is another dishwasher safe tool set in your kitchen.

*100% Guarantee - If you have any problems FOR THE LIFETIME OF THE PRODUCT.

Happy Husband loves the new Pastry Scraper.  He's always using pizza dough, biscuit dough, etc for cooking.

We both like it for several reasons:

It's heavy and sturdy -- not flimsy at all.  A cutter that is too light can actually cause you to hurt yourself.  If the blade bends too easily you will cut yourself.  I know.

The blade is sharp, not rounded, at the corners.

The blade is printed with a six-inch ruler. Perfect for precise measuring.

The blade is stainless steel.  It won't rust and can be washed up with soap and water and even put in the dishwasher.

The Orblue Pastry Scraper is an invaluable kitchen tool.  I highly recommend it for both the novice and experienced baker.

Celebrate Independence Day and Shop Made in The USA!

This post was created in partnership with eAccountable. All opinions are my own.


I love the 4th of July -- Independence Day!  BBQs, beaches, pools, parks, parades, fireworks, flags waving... and especially, thanking our veterans for all they given to this nation.

Let's not forget, during this venerable celebration, to remember the small businesses and products that are made here in the USA.   America is blessed with talented artisans whose many works fuel our economy.

Buying goods that are made in America has a very positive, significant impact both socially economically.  It makes for better working conditions, higher wages, and more opportunities for employees.

Americans are making a concerted effort to buy American-made goods.  Shoppers, business, and those who create and manufacture products are seeing renewed interest and support of these items.  It benefits us all.

Visible Interest is a great company that loves to feature made-in-America products.  All of their jewelry is designed and created by Americans craftsmen and artists.  They have a varied selection of stunning modern jewelry pieces.

In both 2013 and 2014Visible Interest made ABC World New Tonight’s Made in America List! To shop all of Visible Interest's made-in-America modern jewelry, go to "Shop By Category" and select "Made in USA" in the drop-down menu, then search by type of jewelry including earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings.
