This Holiday Gin Moscow Mule is festive AF and is a really delicious variation on the Moscow Mule. While the flavors themselves are plenty festive enough, dressing this cocktail up with fresh rosemary and cranberries really takes it over the top!
These cocktails, while delicious any time of the year, are particularly good for the holiday season. I mean, look at them! Red, green, full of booze…
Speaking of which… The holiday season can be pretty stressful, amirite? Mix up some Holiday Gin Moscow Mules, sit back, and relax. You deserve it. Might I suggest doing so in front of a roaring fire? That’s certainly my plan for this holiday season.

You all know I have a serious thing for Moscow Mules. Is my love for this cocktail over the top? Maybe. But if you’re looking for other Mules, I’ve got you covered. What kind of spirits do you fancy?
Last, but certainly not least, if you’re a fan of tequila, the Mexican Moscow Mule may be for you.
