Apple Cider Moscow Mule

Apple Cider Moscow Mule – a fun fall cocktail with apple cider, apple vodka and ginger beer!  Turn a Moscow Mule into a delicious fall treat! 

I love a good cocktail, especially when it uses seasonal ingredients. Fresh apple cider is in stores and farmers market’s, and it is the perfect time to use it in a cocktail!  Or donuts. Apple Cider Donuts should definitely be on the list of things to make.

I haven’t made a ton of fall cocktails before.  Caramel Apple Sangria is delicious and a tasty drink for a party. A Moscow Mule is a refreshing and delicious drink, and this version with apple cider is great for fall.

What is a Moscow Mule

Moscow mules is a cocktail that is traditionally made with vodka, lime juice, and spicy ginger beer.  It is served over ice with a wedge of lime in a copper mug. The copper mug is not required, but it is definitely the classic way to serve it.  I like to mix it up and make different version – a Holiday Moscow Mule is great for winter!

This Moscow mule recipe skips the lime juice and uses apple cider instead.  And I went all out and used Red Delicious Apple flavored vodka. The vodka is made with red delicious apples, so it definitely amps up the apple flavor!   If you have caramel vodka you could use that too.

HOW TO MAKE A MOSCOW MULE

  • A copper mug is traditional, but not required.  Any glass will do.
  • Ice – you need lots of ice. Moscow mules are best served cold.
  • Vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice are added and then you just mix.  This version swaps apple cider for the lime juice so you get all that apple flavor.
  • If you have apple vodka or even caramel vodka it works great in this recipe.
  • To mix up the flavor you can use a different alcohol, add more or different juices and even fruit.

I like to make sure I always have the Moscow mule ingredients on hand.  It is pretty easy to have bottles of ginger beer in the pantry for mules at anytime.  Everyone loves mules, so they are great to have for parties.

Mules have a reputation of being something hard to make, but they really aren’t.  Just 3 ingredients!  Unless you want to get fancy like a Cherry Limeade Moscow Mule that has maraschino cherry juice added to it.
