Looking for Christmas Cocktails to get you in the spirit? We have been making this festive twist on the moscow mule and we really love it. I’m not one for sugary drinks and this makes a very refreshing cocktail with just enough color and cranberry tartness to give you a little kick of holiday cheer!

Christmas Cocktails- Cranberry Moscow Mule

The recipe:

  • Raw Cranberries and lime slices
  • the juice of one lime
  • 1 TBS of Cranberry Juice Cocktail ( the cocktail kind not the straight juice)
  • 8 oz ginger beer
  • 1 shot of vodka

Add all the liquid ingredients into a separate glass and stir gently. Pour into a copper mug filled with crushed ice. Top with raw cranberries and lime slices and enjoy.

*I forgot the lime slices in my picture, so you’ll just have to imagine those. Damn me and my non visual self.*

There is something so cool and rustic about those tarnished copper mugs. They make me think of wearing one of those giant russian hats and tossing around the word “Petrushka”a lot.

But thats just me.

Do you have a “go to” Christmas cocktail? Do you like to try new drinks each Christmas? I’d love to hear about it!
