This post is brought to you in partnership with Dixie Crystals. Opinions are my own.

Cranberry Apple Moscow Mule. Or Cran-Apple Moscow Mule if the first is too much of a tongue twister. If you’re hosting a holiday part or get together and need something that it’s fitting of the season and something that most everybody will love, give this cocktail a shake.

It takes advantage of fresh cranberries which are in season. Yes, yes they’re not just for turning into a delicious CRANBERRY SAUCE for Thanksgiving. They’re good for so much more. Including making a cranberry simple syrup which is part of what makes this cocktail so special.

Moscow Mule vs. Kentucky Mule.


You can make the cranberry simple syrup in advance to save time. Actually I recommend that. This way, your syrup will be ready and chilled when you’re ready to get your party started. Looky there, you’re already in the running for hostess with the mostest.

There are all kinds of variations on the iconic mule cocktails. There’s Moscow Mules, Kentucky Mules and just mules in general but those aren’t the ones you can drink. The difference is basically the type of liquor used as the base.

You don’t have to serve it in the traditional copper mug, but they’re oh so fun to drink out of. These days you can find them in most stores (like World Market, Target etc.) especially around the holidays or you can always order them online if you have extra time.

When you’re ready to mix up your mules make sure your simple syrup and ginger beers and apple slices are chilled. Cold ingredients into a cold drink bode well. Mix it all up and grab a cute straw and you’re ready to toast to the night, holiday, or just because you feel like a dang mule.
