Recipe for a festive Cranberry Moscow Mule. It’s the perfect drink for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner! Delicious as a non-alcoholic version too!
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve published a series of holiday-themed recipes on the blog. But what would be the point of a festive menu without the perfect matching drink? Therefore I’m bringing you the Cranberry Moscow Mule. It’s a fruity variation of the super trendy Moscow Mule.
If you never heard of a Moscow Mule (dude, really?!), these are the ingredients for the famous cocktail: vodka, lime juice and ginger beer. And it’s typically served in a copper mug. I love moscow mules, so obviously I had to order the iconic copper mugs from amazon.
For this fruity variation, I added cranberry juice to the mix and garnished it with fresh cranberries and a rosemary twig. So fancy and delicious!
Recipe for a festive Cranberry Moscow Mule. It's the perfect drink for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner! Delicious as a non-alcoholic version too!
- 2 parts cranberry juice (make sure it's vegan!)
- 2 parts ginger beer
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 part vodka
- ice cubes
- rosemary twigs
- fresh cranberries
Fill the copper mugs with ice cubes until half full.
Add cranberry juice, ginger beer, lime juice and vodka. Stir to combine.
Garnish with rosemary sprigs and fresh cranberries on a toothpick.
For a non-alcoholic version, simply skip the vodka. Ginger beers are typically categorized as a non-alcoholic drink because their alcohol content is less than 0.5 percent.
