Christmas Mule Recipe


There’s nothing I love more during the holiday season than a good holiday moscow mule served in a pretty copper mug – it’s one of my favorite things!

This time of year we host friends frequently and a festive cocktail is always on the menu. A cranberry moscow mule is one of the best Christmas cocktails.

So easy to make that you don’t even need a cocktail shaker, grab a copper cup and make this perfect holiday drink whenever the mood for holiday cheer strikes.

To make this Christmas cocktail recipe you will need:


  • Vodka – Use your favorite vodka, but I prefer a higher quality vodka like Grey Goose

  • Cranberry juice – Use pure cranberry juice if possible and avoid cranberry juice cocktail
