What is a Moscow Mule?
A Moscow Mule is a refreshing cocktail that’s typically made with vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, and fresh mint leaves. It’s served in a copper mug with ice and usually comes with a lime wedge. Moscow Mules are particularly popular during warmer months. Here is a fun twist for fall.
Make an Apple Cider Moscow Mule
This Apple Cider Moscow Mule takes less than five minutes to make and can easily be doubled or tripled to serve multiple people. To make this seasonal Moscow Mule, simply combine the vodka, ginger beer, apple cider, and lime juice in a mug and mix everything together with a spoon. You don’t want to make a Moscow Mule in a cocktail shaker, because the ginger beer will lose its carbonation if you shake it too much.
Garnish your Apple Cider Moscow Mule with a spring of rosemary, a cinnamon stick, and a lime wedge for the full effect!
