The Cranberry Moscow Mule is a flavorful new take on
a beloved classic drink.
December’s here! And what a better way to celebrate the holidays than a with fizzy Cranberry Moscow Mule?
The first time I tried a Moscow Mule I was at a large marketing conference in Chicago. An executive handed me one to drink and little did I know what I was about to try. The effervescent ginger beer packed quite the wallop, and fizzed straight up my nose. I think my face must have shown my discomfort because he quickly apologized, even though it was my fault for gulping too quick (or snorting, I don’t know).
I’m laughing as I type this, because the Moscow Mule has become one of my favorite drinks, especially when prepared with some fruit like raspberries or cranberries. I like this Cranberry Moscow Mule for the color and the sweet flavor the cranberry brings to it, and they look super festive in a copper mug.
Stir one up and enjoy!
