Apple Ginger Moscow Mule

Do you and your family go apple-picking?  Apple picking wasn’t something I had even heard of until I had a family, and then moved to the East Coast.  I quickly discovered that apple-picking is the all-American thing to do in the fall.  It’s a nice way to spend a fall afternoon, and an even better way to enjoy fresh, local produce at its peak freshness!

How this Apple Ginger Moscow Mule came to be

A few years ago we made our way to a local orchard, I picked more than our fare share of apples. Bringing home copiouos amounts of apples, as well as spiced apple cider, one needs to quickly decide what to do with it all.  With my bounty of apples, I made all kinds of yummy recipes, like my Dutch Apple Tart, Frosted Apple Cinnamon Snack Cake, and even Smokey Apple and Bacon Quesadillas.  However, I had yet to make a crisp, delicious apple cocktail, until now!

Making this delicious Apple Ginger Moscow Mule cocktail

This cold, crisp Apple Ginger Moscow Mule is an amazing way to enjoy fresh apples and spiced apple cider after coming home from apple-picking.  In addition to the cider, this Moscow Mule includes ginger beer and Ginger liqueur.  The Ginger liqueur that I used for this cocktail is a local product that I recently discovered on a trip to West Virginia.

This artisan Ginger Liqueur is made by the Bloomery SweetShine Distillery in Charles Town, WV.  My food-blogger friends and I took a tour of the distillery and learned how this fabulous “sweet shine” is made. We also got to help bottle, and even sample this locally farmed concoction.  The flavors and sweet aroma of this Ginger liqueur are amazing!  In addition to the Ginger flavor,  they also make Hard Lemonade, Black Walnut, Pumpkin, Peach, Chocolate Raspberry, Raspberry Lemon, Lemoncello, and Cranberry Clementine.  Next time you’re looking for a delicious flavored liqueur, be sure to look for Bloomery Sweet Shine.

As soon as I tried that delicious Ginger liqueur I knew I had to make a delicious Moscow Mule.  Pairing it with spiced cider, and ginger beer was the perfect way to infuse the delicious, crisp flavors of fall.  The flavors are amazing together, and when topped with a fresh apple slice and a cinnamon stick, you’ll discover this drink to be a new fall favorite.
