Apple Cider Moscow Mule

I promised over the summer when I shared my grapefruit Moscow mule recipe that I was going hard on Moscow mules from basically now until eternity. I’m making good on my word today, with your new favorite drink of fall! An apple cider Moscow mule made with cinnamon sugar, fresh apple cider and ginger beer, of course. We’re officially at the point where we keep ginger beer stocked in the fridge at all times. Because you just never know. Maybe you come home from the cider mill with a jug of fresh cider and the mood strikes you to whip up something tasty and delicious. Maybe that happened to us the other day. Maybe I’m not going to judge you however and whenever you drink your mules. No judgement here, friends! Just be sure to give this one a try. You’ll be glad you did!

Yum yum yum! I actually am posting the same thing on Monday. I made them over the weekend and now I just can’t stop, so refreshing and full of fall.

So good, Nikki! We should make some soon ;-)

Agreed, Amy! They’re really good. I’ve made them a few different ways, but this is my favorite. That cinnamon sugar muddled with the apples is spot on!

I became obsessed with the classic version this summer and now, knowing that there is a fresh jug of cider in my fridge, I must try your version. Thanks for sharing!

WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE!? Two of my absolute favorites in one. I am obsessing!!

Cyd Converse

Erin, if you love the classic (as do I), you will go crazy for these! Let me know what you think! xoxo

Make yourself one (or two) this weekend, Karly! They are so yummy. XO

Oh yum! What a great idea for a drink!

Cyd Converse

If I made this on bulk (like a pitcher) would it still have the same effect? Or does the ginger beer get flat?

Cyd Converse

Hi Nichole! It would definitely work in a pitcher. I’d make it just before (15 minutes or so) or right as your guests are set to arrive and you could definitely serve it out of a pitcher. It likely won’t last long enough to go flat ;-)

These are delish! Thanks for sharing.

Yay, thanks, Debbie! I am so glad you enjoyed them! xoxo
