The Caramel Apple Moscow Mule is a *great* Fall cocktail. Caramel vodka, apple cider, and ginger beer play together very, very well.
This combination if ingredients tastes just like a boozy caramel apple in a glass.

What ingredients go into a Caramel Apple Moscow Mule?
- Caramel vodka: This is key to making this drink taste like a caramel apple. I've generally had luck finding the Smirnoff brand of caramel-flavored vodka.
- Apple cider: Look for it in the refrigerated section (or sometimes the produce section) of your grocery store.
- Ginger beer: I like a nice, spicy ginger beer, but use whatever you prefer. Keep in mind that using a sweeter ginger beer will alter the overall sweetness of the drink.
- Lime juice: Freshly squeezed, please!
- Apple slice: This is optional, but it sure looks pretty.
How do you make a Caramel Apple Moscow Mule?
Very easily, fortunately!
Start by filling a copper mug with ice. I prefer crushed ice. If you don't have a copper mug, a regular glass will suffice. Copper mugs help to keep the drink icy cold. Plus, they look really pretty.
Vodka, apple cider, lime juice, and ginger beer all go into the mug/glass. Give it a all a gentle stir, then garnish!
