A new company recently reached out to me because they’re planning to expand into the Triangle area. They’re called Drizly, and make shopping for booze as easy as ordering a pizza. All you have to do is pick out what you want online and they deliver it to your door, oftentimes within an hour! Seriously guys, no need to leave the house for your hooch anymore.
In partnership with Drizly, I’ll be sharing three really delicious cocktails with you over the next couple of weeks. Since I’m kind of basic and love Fall, I tried to keep things pretty seasonal. The first cocktail is the Caramel Apple Moscow Mule.
The ginger beer imparts the classic spicy flavors of a Moscow Mule, while apple cider and caramel vodka sweeten things up a bit. Last, a squeeze of lime juice cuts the sweetness just a bit, resulting in a delicious Fall sipper that tastes just like a caramel apple!
In the mood for more Mules? I’ve got you covered. The Cranberry Vanilla Moscow Mule is particularly good during the winter holiday season, while the Old Kentucky Mule (hello, bourbon) is a winner during the fall , and original Moscow Mule is appropriate anytime.
You’ll need (makes 1 cocktail):
- 1.5 oz caramel vodka (available here)
- 3 oz apple cider
- 3 oz ginger beer (available here)
- juice of 1/2 lime
- thin slice of apple, for garnish (optional)
Pour all ingredients over ice and stir to combine. Garnish with a slice of apple if you’re feeling fancy (you know that you are), and imbibe!
If you prefer a slightly less sweet cocktail, reduce the apple cider and increase the ginger beer.
