IMG_3183

My friends over at Copper Mug wanted a healthy Moscow mule made with kombucha, just fresh juice or something all natural. (BTW, they have gorgeous copper ware like mugs, martini glasses, jigger — you name it.) I settled on trying to incorporate Kombucha Gingerade since it’s low in sugar, uses fresh ginger juice and packed with probiotics. The fresh ginger gives is an extra kick. Still want to sip on a cocktail post-holidays, but want a “detox?” Sip on this Kombucha Gingerade Moscow Mule — just in time for happy hour.

Tart & Spiced Holiday Moscow Mules

IMG_5678Another tasty take on a Moscow mule — a (Christmas) Cranberry Moscow Mule. The copper mugs are just so fun, they’re begging to be used after making the lovely Apple Cider Moscow Mules.

If you’re feeling exceptionally festive, garnish with fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary. While Christmas has passed, at least you have another option to ring in the New Year. Cheers!

Not Your Average Apple Cider

Apple Cider Moscow Mule
This take on a Moscow mule goes down too easy. Mmmm, it’s that good. While not entirely nutritious, it is quite delicious. No sugary syrups, just local apple cider and fresh lime juice to add to the mix. I also opted for a diet ginger beer.  The ginger is a refreshing diversion from a standard cocktail. (Plus, the copper mugs are just so retro and modern all at once, and they keep your drink perfectly chilled. You’ll want an excuse to pull them out next.) Our family friends were graciously taste-testers, when I debuted this drink, and it was an instant hit. So take a sip for Halloween once it hits 5 o’clock on Friday and enjoy that Apple Cider Moscow Mule. Cheers! Continue reading “Not Your Average Apple Cider”
