This Cranberry Orange Moscow Mule is a refreshing twist on a traditional Mule. It’s the perfect drink all winter long.
I meant to share this Cranberry Orange Moscow Mule recipe with you before Christmas. It really made for a special holiday drink. However, as it seems to happen every December, time slipped away and I wasn’t able to get the post done in time. At least I got to share my Cranberry Orange Sangria with you 😉No biggie though, because I’m sharing it with you today. Yes technically cranberry season is probably passing by, but there are still plenty of fresh cranberries available (at least in my stores). You also don’t really need the fresh cranberries since they’re only for garnish so it’s a drink you can truly enjoy all winter long.
I served these glorious drinks on Christmas Eve during our party and I was literally mixing drinks all night long because they were such a hit. Even Adam’s aunt who hardly ever drinks enjoyed these. They’re such a fun twist on the traditional Moscow Mule which is made with lime juice.
What really makes this Cranberry Orange Moscow Mule special (aside from the cranberry orange combo) is the ginger beer. Ginger beer is essential to Moscow Mules. It’s not like regular beer, it’s actually soda. BUT it’s not your regular old ginger ale. It’s got a much stronger ginger taste that really gives these drinks some zip and zing. Please don’t use ginger ale and get yourself some ginger beer. It’ll make a HUGE difference in flavor.
