With the holidays in full swing, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes that is a great option for the whole family. This is a staple recipe for holiday gatherings, entertaining and also a hit. I’m more of a social drinker and always looking for ways to make cocktail recipes sans alcohol.
This Moscow Mule mocktail is a twist on the original recipe which uses Vodka, ginger beer and fresh limes.
Moscow mules are traditionally and best served in copper mugs which keeps them cold. You can always use a regular glass if copper mugs are not an option. This recipe uses orange juice and cranberries just in time for the festive season
6oz Ginger Beer
1oz Simple Syrup*
1-2oz orange juice concentrate*
2oz club soda (optional)
Ice cubes or crushed ice
*To make this a true cocktail, add 1oz of Vodka and 1-2oz of Triple Sec.
Pour ginger beer, simple syrup, orange juice and club soda into mug.
Add a few mint leaves (optional)
Fill mug about half way with ice.
Pour ginger beer over ice
Garnish with cranberries, mint leaves and an orange wedge
It’s ready to serve. I hope you enjoy.
