Back in October during the Canadian Thanksgiving I shared my first Mule recipe. If you recall I may have mentioned have always enjoyed a beer. Growing to love wine and of course beach cocktails over time. . Mules however I had never even heard of until I started blogging.
I seriously think I lived under a rock. Fast forward to today and mule variations are everywhere. Just google it, or search Pinterest and you will find a ton of recipes. Today a variation of my Moscow Mule for Christmas.

Some are simple and traditional and some are extreme. A Traditional Mule of course has Vodka, Ginger Beer and Lime Juice and is served in the Copper Mug. Now remember Ginger Beer is not Ginger Ale, totally different.
Today a bright splash of seasonal color transforms this classic cocktail into a new holiday favorite. If you enjoy the warm gingery flavor of a traditional Moscow Mule, you will definitely want to give this one a try!
