Old Fashioned makes sense for Montana. Locals love whiskey and have a common term, whiskey ditch, which translates to whiskey and water.

One unique part of a Moscow Mule is the drink is put together in a copper mug.

We don't make the rules for Moscow Mules.

You can get an Old Fashioned in any bar in Montana. It's the same ingredients everywhere you go and one of the first drinks you learn to make as a bartender.

Moscow Mules, on the other hand, are usually found in more upscale bars. The copper mugs aren't cheap, and having them on hand in a dive bar might seem ridiculous.
