This festive Cranberry Moscow Mule is tart, a tad spicy and comes with an added hint of sweetness! It’s a great drink for the holidays!
Oh the holidays are upon us! I can’t believe Christmas is about a week away. And even though it doesn’t feel quite like Christmas time to me or December for that matter, everything is in full swing. My house is decorated, I’m making yummy goodies, and we’re getting ready for all the fun activities that are about to go down. 🙂 I just love this time of year, it’s my absolute favorite!
Another favorite of mine is a really good Moscow Mule. And over the last two months, my husband and I have been really enjoying this festive Cranberry Moscow Mule. We love making mules together (it’s one of our things) and this fun, holiday drink is one we have fine-tuned to fit our individual tastes.
And because this mule can be made two different ways, it’s one that can be enjoyed anytime…but it’s especially perfect for a fun Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving or Christmas with the family.
So be sure to add this mule to your cocktail list; it will not disappoint. Promise! 😉
