Like many apple cider drink recipes, this Moscow mule is great served icy cold in a copper mug. Garnish with some apple slices and cinnamon sticks for the ultimate fall drink.
How do I make an apple cider Moscow mule?
An apple cider Mule is made by combining apple cider, lime juice, ginger beer and vodka together. Traditionally, a Moscow mule is served over ice in a copper mug.
What do I need to make an apple cider mule?
To make an apple cider Moscow mule, you’ll need apple cider, ginger beer, fresh lime juice and vodka. You can also add cinnamon sticks and/or apple slices to your mule, if desired.
What other liquor can I add to a mule?
Most mule recipes include vodka and ginger beer, however for this apple cider mule, I decided to substitute the vodka for ginger liqueur.
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.
If you are not able to find ginger liqueur, I would recommend substituting regular vodka, like Titos.
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.
