You know I couldn’t let Thanksgiving roll around without a cocktail right?!? This Apple Cranberry Moscow Mule is for EVERYONE!
We all need a little cocktail or mocktail two around the holidays, am I right? There’s a lot going on in the world… I get it! This Apple Cranberry Moscow Mule isn’t too sweet and it’s easy to whip up on a moments notice! Just grab a few key ingredients from the store and I bet you’ll already have some of it on hand.
It’s equal parts refreshing and spritz-y, this cocktail is packed with all the flavor! I typically use vodka as that’s traditional in a mule, but you could sub in gin, tequila, or whatever else you please! Or ditch the booze and go mocktail style. Ginger beer goes on top because it’s the best mixer in my opinion, and then garnish it up and serve!
And yes, you can easily batch make this cocktail if you’re going to be serving more than 1-2 people at a time. The recipe below makes 2 Apple Cranberry Moscow Mule, but you can multiply it up as much as needed. Just be sure to give it a quick stir before serving!
