Cranberry Moscow Mule 

Best Moscow Mule Recipe

If you are a Moscow Mule fan, then you’ll love this yummy Cranberry Moscow Mule recipe that is perfect for the holidays and a great beverage recipe for ringing in the New Year!

Since we almost always celebrate New Year’s Eve as a family, this is a great drink recipe because not only is it easy, but you can simply make it a non-alcoholic beverage by omitting the vodka. 

In years when we’ve not had ginger beer on hand we’ve used ginger ale but honestly, for this drink to be a success, I highly recommend ginger beer.

How to Make a Cranberry Moscow Mule 

Fill a mule glass with ice. Add the vodka and cranberry juice. Top with ginger beer (enough to fill the cup). Garnish with lime and cranberries, if desired. Serve immediately. 

If you really want the full Moscow Mule drink effect, you’ll want to serve these in copper mugs or glasses.

Cranberry Moscow Mule Drink Recipe Notes 

Moscow Mules should not be made ahead as the ginger beer will start to flatten (lose its bubbles) once opened. 

To make a Kentucky mule, use bourbon instead of vodka. 

To add a little “something extra” add 1/2 ounce of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur— it helps enhance the earthiness of the cranberries.

Such a simple drink with so much flavor! The cranberries add a fresh element and the lime kicks it up even more.
