Rosemary and Cranberry

 Moscow Mule 

Shake up a rosemary and cranberry Moscow Mule for your next holiday party. You'll love this easy drink recipe. Easy to serve cocktail or mocktail with a festive flair!
    Cranberry Crush week continues! Today’s recipe is the perfect drink for a holiday party. It would be super easy to serve as a mocktail, in case your not cocktail inclined. I was inspired by another twist on a Moscow mule that a local restaurant offers. I wanted to incorporate some of the same ideas, but with a holiday twist!  This rosemary and cranberry Moscow mule will make you look like an expert bartender. The slight taste of rosemary edges through the ginger that pairs perfectly with cranberry. I’m sure you’ll approve!

     Start by placing the cranberry juice, cherry grenadine, vodka (if inclined) and a sprig of rosemary in a martini shaker. Top with ice. Shake-ah-shake-ah. I like to shake until a visible frost forms on the shaker, so about 30 seconds.

     My husband loves ginger beer so much, he could drink it without any of the other ingredients in the Moscow Mule. I’m a fan of the Moscow Mule in the copper mug. I sometimes might have to hide the ginger beer from him.
