The holidays are calling! Try this ‘twist’ on an old favorite, the Moscow Mule. Add a few cranberries for garnish to dress up this lightly sweetened and carbonated Cranberry Mule.
At my neighbor’s house a couple of weeks ago, she let me try a can of cranberry ginger that she bought at Trader Joe’s. The combination tasted great with Vodka. So, how could I recreate this cocktail if I didn’t have a Trader Joe’s near me?

Ingredients that you’ll need to make a Cranberry Mule
I like to use either Stoli (Stolichnaya), Absolut, or Tito’s Vodka for mixed drinks. They are good quality, mid-priced vodkas. You’ll also need cranberry juice, ginger beer (it’s non-alcoholic), and lime.
The holiday season is a perfect time to showcase my fancy barware. To drink a Cranberry Mule in a copper cup is pleasurable because the copper cup keeps your drink frosty. If you don’t have copper cups, that’s ok; the Cranberry Mule still tastes great and is one of the easiest drinks to make.

How to make this easy Cranberry Mule
Fill a shaker half full of ice, then add your Vodka, cranberry, ginger beer, and the juice of 1/2 a lime. Strain your Cranberry mule into a cup filled with ice. Add a few cranberries for garnish, optional.
Raise your glass and toast to this beautiful season, and don’t forget to leave Santa a cup of cheer.
