I got the real copper one from Costco of course more expensive than theses, but these are ok not really bad as others say.
I spend lot of time in India and other Asian counties they use all kinds of metal glasses, steel, copper, nickel and copper.
The reason they use is the way metal reacts with everything including water. Their believe is small bacteria and other harmful particles in water will get killed when water comes in contact with metal due to opposite ions. Which of course not really blind believe, it's prove scientifically.
Also, those who comments that nickels outside and copper inside will pollute water and release metal into the water and all, needs to go back to high school and re-read chemistry and properties of metals.
It's really common in India and other South Asian countries to make big cooking and drinking pitcher with combination of nickel and copper and it's perfectly safe. The reason they do is to reduce cost, of course you can buy whole copper but, they are mostly expensive, but mixed utensils and glass don't harm you.
I have been using copper, copper mix, steel and nickel glass for years. Just the cold water in these glasses taste really good, you will get used to it after sometime.
Yes, don't use acidic items in them and yes, they are little high maintenance as you have to clean them ever now and then through with hot water and by hands.
This is good deal and don't be fool, by stupid comments by people who either never use one or don't have enough knowledge.

I'm not saying it's wrong, but the huffpost is about as credible as a random 4chan post. I'm sure there are other sources though, thanks for the info.

The acidity from the lime juice reacts with the copper, gives it an extra little subtle refreshing taste. A hard thing to describe.
As others have stated, do not waste your money on these weird alloy cups. For mules it's either full actual copper, or nothing. They generally run about $20 a cup. You can tell if it's full copper by scraping the bottom with a file. If it's nothing but more copper as you scrap in, you're golden.

I've heard horror stories about cheap Moscow mule mugs . Tarnish / copper coming off in the drinks. Wearing super quickly. Not worth going with cheap ones when you might be ingesting some things you should be.

Thanks for bringing this up. Scientists have debunked this myth:

"Even if you drink a liter of Moscow mules from pure copper mugs, which you probably shouldn't, you wouldn't even come close to reaching that 30 milligram limit."

Old Dutch International (ODI) is a reputable US brand that began in 1950.

Why do people like drinking mules out of these mugs? I must be missing something because they taste so much better out of glass...

The copper keeps them ice cold longer

Then why isn't every cold drink served in copper mugs?

They're expensive and not dishwasher-safe. Best used for special occasions

Yup same reason you don't cook acidic stuff in aluminum, copper, or iron...
