We’ve officially made it to Christmas week! So much planning, gifting and making goes into celebrating this holiday and I’m so looking forward to a long weekend spent with family and friends. One filled with love and happiness… and food and drinks. Ammiright?
Among a traditional holiday spread, the food and sweet treats are bountiful, leaving just enough room for a refreshing cocktail. A mixture that isn’t too sweet, yet warms you from the inside out. That’s why I’m deeming this Cranberry Moscow Mule as the perfect holiday cocktail. A traditional Mule is simple enough, but with some added flavor and Christmas color, this mix is sure to be a party favorite.
Cranberry Moscow Mule
1 shot vodka
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Juice of half a lime
Cranberries & lime slices for garnish
Put ice in copper mug, pour in vodka. Fill cup with ginger beer until almost full. Splash in cranberry juice and top with lime. Garnish with lime slices and fresh cranberries.
Easily adapt the recipe to your liking! Use cranberry vodka for a stronger flavor, or leave the cranberry out altogether. Just make sure to keep the garnish to spread that Christmas cheer!
