This Cranberry Vanilla Moscow Mule is sweet, spicy, and totally refreshing. The vanilla flavor keeps things fresh and interesting.Happy New Year, everyone! For many of you, this may be your first day back at work after the holidays. I feel that pain.
I’m back in the office after being out for nearly two weeks (!!). Was it fun while it lasted? Absolutely. Am I wishing that I was slightly more productive over break? Yes.
Alas. I think we could all use a drink after the work day is through.
You’ll need (makes 1 cocktail):
- 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
- 1 oz cranberry vanilla simple syrup (see instructions below*)
- juice of 1/2 lime
- ginger beer
Add the vodka, simple syrup, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until very cold and strain into a glass with ice (preferably a copper mug). Top with ginger beer and enjoy!
*Make the simple syrup according to this method, but throw in 1 cup of fresh cranberries and a splash of vanilla extract along with the sugar and water.
