I can't believe Christmas is around the corner. What better way to celebrate the holiday and survive your family than with a delicious cocktail?! I love the Moscow mule cocktail because it's quick and simple. If quarantine taught me anything, it's that I'm better at drinking cocktails than making them.
The mule is a classical cocktail that's traditionally enjoyed in cooler months, but it's become go- to year round for me. I've already shared a recipe for the Moscow mule, but I thought it would be fun to give it a holiday twist by adding a seasonal favorite, cranberries.
Even though the measurements are for one serving, you can easily increase them and make a batch for your holiday shindig. I love serving these in decorative punch bowls and adding lots of lime and orange slices to it. Cheers to a safe and Merry Christmas!
