The perfect cocktail recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas, you name it! Complete with fresh made cranberry sauce.
Did anyone else see how early Thanksgiving is this year?? Instead of being at the end of a November it’s smack in the middle! Time to get going on some of those autumn feast recipes. First off, let’s start with cocktails. Introducing the cranberry mule holiday cocktail!
So traditionally, every Thanksgiving we whip up a bunch of cranberry daiquiris. This year, I thought I’d give something new a try!
First off, my go to spirit of choice is whiskey, specifically bourbon. Then I like to mix it with ginger beer (dark and stormy with whiskey anyone?). It turns out, that’s basically a Kentucky mule. Aka a Moscow mule but instead of vodka you use your fave whiskey.
Two guesses where this is going...the cranberry mule! Unsurprisingly, I used bourbon in my batch. However, you can honestly use whatever mule base suits your fancy. They’re also great with vodka or rum!
My favorite thing about this cranberry mule is the cranberry sauce. It’s no secret that I absolutely looooove cranberry sauce. So it was a no-brainer that actual, fresh cranberry sauce would be a main ingredient in this refreshing autumn cocktail.
Another awesome thing? It’s great for Christmas time too! The cranberry mule, my new holiday cocktail go to. Check out the recipe below and enjoy 🥂!
