Looking for a fun and festive cocktail to serve your guests this holiday season? You can never go wrong with a refreshing cranberry cocktail and you certainly won’t disappoint any guests with this tasty take on the classic Moscow Mule cocktail. Originating back in the 1940’s, the Moscow Mule is traditionally served in a copper mug which keeps the beverage extra cold for a better drinking experience. The addition of cranberry juice and fresh whole cranberries not only makes this a delicious variation, but with its festive ruby red color, it ties into the holiday season perfectly.
