CRANBERRY MOSCOW MULE 

 

Ingredients

 

CRANBERRY SYRUP

1 c fresh cranberries

½ c water

¼ c honey

 

CRANBERRY MOSCOW MULE

2 oz vodka

1 oz cranberry syrup

½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice

6 oz ginger beer

lime wedge, for garnish

mint sprig, for garnish

fresh cranberries, for garnish

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine the cranberries, water, and honey in a small saucepan and place over medium high heat. Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the cranberries soften then fall apart. 

 

Pour the syrup through fine mesh strainer, and press on the cranberries with a spatula to release as much syrup as possible. Set aside to cool.

 

To make one cocktail, Combine the vodka, cranberry syrup, and lime juice in a copper mug. Stir to combine. Fill the mug halfway with crushed ice. Pour the ginger beer over the ice and stir one more. Top with additional crushed ice and garnish with a sprig of mint, lime wedge, and fresh cranberries. 

 

The cranberry syrup makes enough for four cocktails (about half a cup of syrup).

 

LARGE BATCH 

To create large-batch cranberry moscow mules (serves 8, and scales up easily):

 

Double the cranberry syrup (about 1 cup total).

Combine the 1 cup cranberry syrup with 2 cups vodka and a ½ cup of lime juice in a pitcher or decanter. Stir to combine, then chill. 

 

Set up a beverage station with an ice bucket, shot glass, several bottles of ginger beer, mugs, and small bowls of garnishes. Instruct guests to pour three “shots” of the cranberry mule base into a glass with ice, then top with ginger beer. Stir, garnish, and serve! 

 

NON-ALCOHOLIC MOSCOW MULE

 

Make a non-alcoholic Cranberry Moscow Mule drink by simply omitting the vodka, and mixing the cranberry and ginger beer. Mellow out the flavor with seltzer, if needed.
