Apple Cider Moscow Mules

I don't know about y'all but I love a fun cocktail! Whenever we're out at a restaurant, I love trying new things and Michael and I have gotten pretty experimental with drinks in our house over the past couple years. It's so fun to mix and match ingredients and pretend we know anything about mixology! ;)

This week it finally started to look and feel like Fall, so I wanted to share an autumnal twist to one of my favorite cocktails with y'all - a Moscow Mule!

This mule is a sweet and spicy version of your traditional Moscow Mule, which is usually just ice, lime, vodka and ginger beer. Here, you're subbing the vodka for a flavored version and adding a little apple cider. I originally found this recipe here and it's killer!

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 1 1/2oz caramel vodka
  • 3oz apple cider
  • ginger beer
  • apple slices and/or cinnamon sticks to garnish

Fill copper mule mugs (or regular glasses) with ice, vodka and apple cider. Top with the ginger beer and garnish as you please! I also saw another version of this drink that was a twist on the Kentucky Mule - using whiskey in place of vodka. If you're a whiskey drinker, like my hubby, that might be a fun one to try, too!

Happy weekend!
