DIY Copper Cup for Moscow Mule | Made from 3/4″ Pipe!

All the cool kids are drinking Moscow Mules. But they’re supposed to be served in copper cups, which are expensive. Here’s how to make your own DIY copper cups with nothing more than 3/4 inch copper pipe. You can buy all of the materials for about $3 per cup from the hardware store, or find scrap metal and make them cheap or free.

I’ve never done any sort of copper or sheet metal fabrication so this is about what you can expect if you’re a beginner. Overall I’m happy with the results. The hardest part was learning to solder or “sweat” the parts together.

Our Moscow Mule recipe is 2oz vodka and 4oz ginger beer. These cups ended up about 7 ounces which are perfect.

    enjoy watching your videos. One concern about the soldering of the copper mugs make sure you use solder that does not contain lead,

      Thanks. You can’t really buy leaded solder very easily anymore. It’s not available at home depot, but you can still order it online.
