The 2014 winter Olympics are underway in Sochi, with our Canadian athletes really “owning the podium” in events ranging from skiing to skating.

If you aren’t travelling to Russia to cheer on our Canadian Olympic athletes in person, gather your friends around the TV at home for an Olympics party, complete with Olympic-themed cocktails from Loews Hotels.

Hotels across the Loews chain each partnered with Russian Standard Vodka to create a unique Moscow Mule cocktail with an Olympic-twist. Served in the classic Russian Vodka copper mug, these cocktails are available at Loews Hotels until Feb. 23 — but we’ve listed some of the best recipes below for you to create at home!
