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 two around the holidays, am I right? The family is all in town, there may or may not be any drama… 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 used vodka as that’s traditional in a mule, but you could sub in gin, tequila, or whatever else you please! 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 a lot of people at once. 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!
