Have you jumped on the Moscow Mule train yet? Do it! There is a reason this drink is trending and has been for awhile. They are super tasty, really fun, AND really versatile. My favorite right now is the Cranberry Moscow Mule. It is the perfect combination of sweet and sour.
You can make tons of different flavors of mules, so you can cater them to your guests desires. Or, finding your favorite Moscow Mule recipe can be a fun game to play with your significant other.
Because Christmas parties and other holiday parties are coming, I was on a search for a Moscow Mule recipe that would be festive and fun. I found the perfect recipe in this Cranberry Moscow Mule.
My husband and I worked on this recipe to perfect it. We wanted a drink that had the right amount of sweet, sour, flavor, and alcohol. The traditional recipe for Moscow Mules calls for vodka, but some people use gin. I prefer vodka, my husband prefers his favorite gin, Tanqueray.
This drink can be dressed up easily with the garnishes of whole, fresh cranberries and rosemary sprigs. Don’t they just make the drink look important and pretty?
The recipe calls for Ginger Beer which can be either alcoholic or not. I bought mine (non-alcholoic) from Trader Joes and it is SUPER tasty. I got my vodka there too and I think it is such a pretty bottle. Ha!
3 oz Vodka
6 oz Ginger Beer
2 oz Cranberry Juice (100% cranberry juice)
squirt Fresh Lime
Whole Cranberries (for garnish, optional)
Rosemary Sprig for garnish, optional)
Fill your copper mug with ice.
Squirt fresh lime juice in the bottom of the mug.
Pour in 3 oz of your favorite vodka.
