These Mules are *just* what you want to help you celebrate the holiday season
These Candy Cane Moscow Mules are sweet, spicy, and pleasantly minty! They're the perfect cocktail pairing for any of your winter holidays.
Also! The copper mugs you see in the photos were provided to me, free of charge, by Advanced Mixology. As always, all opinions are my own.
Though the flavors in this drink may seem like a strange combination, they're great together!
I wanted to squeeze in one more quick, festive recipe post before Christmas arrived. And what better way to celebrate the season than with a delicious cocktail?
Admittedly, I was a little skeptical that peppermint vodka and ginger beer would play well together. I'm glad that I decided to try it out anyway, because they're great together!
How do these cocktails come together?
Couldn't be easier.
Start by filling a copper mug with crushed ice. Add the peppermint vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice. Stir everything together gently with a bar spoon.
Top the mug off with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge and a mini candy cane!
