Still have some fresh cranberries left over from last week's cranberry gin martini or one of these fresh cranberry recipes? Then dust off those copper Moscow Mule cups and mix up a batch of this holiday version - the Cranberry Moscow Mule.
I had pinned this recipe a year or so ago from Michelle at Blackberry Babe and just refound it when I was looking for things to do with all the fresh cranberries I stocked up on. I love that it's easy, festive, and a fun holiday twist on a drink that's been so popular in 2016. And delicious. So so delicious.
- 8 oz. ginger beer
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 jigger of vodka
- 1 tbsp cranberry juice cocktail
- raw cranberries and lime slices for garnish
- Combine all ingredients, and stir. Pour over ice, and serve, preferably in a copper mug.
- Garnish with raw cranberries and lime slices.
You can play around with the recipe a bit too - I liked it with a little less ginger beer and a little more vodka and cranberry.
While you can serve this cranberry mule in any old cup, there is something about the copper mule mugs that just make these taste better. And stay colder. And the copper color really is quite festive. If you don't already have some, pick up a pair or 4-pack of these hammer-finish mule mugs to use all year round.
