Is there any drink more refreshing than a Moscow Mule? Thanks to that signature copper mug, it’s the perfect way to chill out on a sweltering summer day. Not to mention, with all of the recipe variations available today, these mugs can be a source of endless inspiration. If we can jazz up a standard mule recipe, we should be able to jazz up that plain ol’ copper mug it comes in, right? Well, we at Brit + Co certainly think so, so we put together an Engraved Copper Mug Kit so you can add your own personal touch to a classic.

The best part about these engraved mugs? The engraved designs are even more visible when your cup is filled with an ice cold beverage.

Materials: (included in our kit)

— copper mugs

— engraving pen

Materials: (not included in the kit)

Get your materials together (or get the kit HERE) and let’s get started!

Write directly on the practice piece with permanent marker and practice engraving by tracing your design.

When you feel confident, move onto the copper mugs.

4

To start, engrave over your entire design once.

5

Then go back into your design and remove more material to change up the line weight.

6

Rub away the permanent marker using nail polish remover. You may need to do this a few times over to fully remove the permanent marker.

That’s all it takes to customize your very own copper mug.
