Cranberry Moscow Mule with Rosemary Infused Vodka, you’ll love this holiday twist on a classic and so will you’re guests! Light, refreshing, delicious, and filled with holiday cheer!
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas! Well, almost Christmas. In fact, a week from today will be Christmas Day.
How crazy is that!
I would like you to know that I have spent the last two hours watching a Hallmark Christmas movie and got nothing done. Absolutely nothing. While I love Christmas movies they make me very unproductive. I get suckered in and then end up watching a love story unfold during Christmas time, because let’s be honest, all those Hallmark movies are really love stories with a Christmas theme. 🙂
The reason I tell you that I wasted time is because my mind is absolutely blank on what to write right now.
I try to grasp for something and nothing comes to mind.
The only thing my mind is holding strong on is that these cocktails are a must this holiday season!
Can I tell you something? I have actually never made a Moscow Mule before. I’ve had my fair share of samples but never made one. I decided I needed to change that. Actually my husband decided I needed to change that.
Last weekend, Mike and I had a little down time before his Christmas party so we just took a walk around town and ended up in Sur La Table. (best place ever to land, if you’re a food blogger) While I was looking for food props my husband was looking at the Copper Mugs. As I was checking out Mike said, are you sure you don’t want those Copper Mugs. I looked at him, and then the cashier, and said “ohhh, ok. go grab them”
Best part of this story was I had a gift card to Sur La Table that I thought only had $4 on it, umm… I was a little off. It had $60 on it! Yippee.. free Copper Mugs for me!
So, of course I HAD to experiment with my new Copper Mugs and perfect my Moscow Mule game! Wouldn’t you?
Any excuse to make a fun cocktail!
Luckily Moscow Mules are not that hard to make. The main ingredients are Vodka, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice and ice. Easy enough right!
I decided to start with the basics and then elevate it for the holidays. What says Holiday Cheer more than Cranberries!!!!
Or should I say RED and GREEN!
This Cranberry Moscow Mule has a splash of cranberry juice, fresh squeezed lime juice, and homemade Rosemary Infused Vodka to take it over the top! Absolutely perfect for your next holiday party! The flavors are incredible and blend into each other so well, you’ll be on your second before you know it!
Don’t worry this drink doesn’t discriminate. If you don’t have a Copper Mug you can still make it, and it will be just as delicious!
Bon Appetite my friends … or I guess I should say Cheers!
