If you’re a lover of vodka, there’s a pretty big chance that you love a great Moscow mule. The Moscow mule is a favorite of many people all over the world, so it makes sense that there would be some new and great variations of the drink for the holidays. If you continue reading the following paragraphs, you’ll find some really amazing Moscow mule recipes that can be an impressive hit at almost any gathering.
Cranberry Moscow Mule
The first drink to look at is probably one you would expect. Vodka cranberry pairings have been very popular over the last few decades, so a cranberry Moscow mule is an expected and welcome addition to this tasty beverage. Just grab your favorite glass, and pour in 2 shots of vodka, juice from half of a lime, 2 ounces of cranberry juice, 4 ounces of ginger beer, stir with ice, and garnish with lime wedges and cranberries. A bonus of this drink is that it’s great for your digestive system and urinary health when consumed in moderation.
This drink is a slight twist on the Moscow mule using gin instead of plain vodka and the addition of rosemary to the mix. In this version, you might decide that you want the ginger beer to be a bit heavier to mellow out the gin, so you could add 6 ounces of ginger beer, 2 shots of gin, a small handful of frozen cranberries, and a rosemary sprig for flavor and garnish.
Apple Fritter Mule
What’s more festive than apple baked goods? This Moscow mule is sure to be a big hit with people who are trying it for the first time. The trick is to make your basic Moscow mule, but with 3 ounces of ginger beer and 3 ounces of apple cider. You can garnish it with cinnamon and apple slices so that you can get that fully authentic flavor.
Peach Moscow Mule
Peach is a fruit that is often underused when it comes to making drinks. To make a peach Moscow mule, you can simply make your regular Moscow mule with slight modifications. You would use 2 ounces of ginger beer, to make room for 2 ounces of lime juice, 2 ounces of vodka, and freshly sliced peach to garnish and flavor your drink. This drink should be served with ice for the best experience.
