Happy Hour--Cranberry Cider Pecan Mules

Thanksgiving is almost here and I've got one more delicious cocktail for your holiday celebrations.  I used yummy apple cider, tart cranberry juice, tasty Cat Head Pecan Vodka, and a splash of ginger ale.  So technically this is not a regular Moscow Mule, but I loved this cocktail served in these copper mugs.  So festive.

This is another festive cocktail that can be made ahead of time in a pitcher for serving.  I love setting up a little area where my guests can serve themselves a delicious cocktail while I'm still in the kitchen cooking up a storm.  I usually have the garnishes set aside and already prepared so that they can easily garnish their cocktail--you definitely don't want to skimp on the beautiful garnishes.

Yield: 1 cocktail

Cranberry Cider Pecan Mules


  • 3 ounces apple cider
  • 1.5 ounces cranberry juice
  • 2.5 ounces Pecan Vodka
  • ginger ale
  • garnishes: apple slices, cranberries, rosemary sprigs, cinnamon sticks


  1. Combine the apple cider, cranberry juice, and Pecan Vodka in a glass filled with crushed ice.  Top with a splash of ginger ale.  (Taste and add a bit of simple syrup is not sweet enough.)
  2. Garnish with apple slices, cranberries, rosemary sprigs, and a cinnamon stick.
