Holiday Moscow Mule

You’ll fa-la-la-la-love Kachét’s Christmas cocktail, full of cosmo mix, tart cranberry and sprigs of rosemary. Whip up a big batch for guests at a holiday party—and pair with Christmas cookies for best results.

Pineapple Coconut Mule

Do like Eric, from Dude That Cookz and put the lime (and the pineapple) in the coconut and shake it all up to make this tropical twist on a Moscow mule. Finish it off with fresh pineapple chunks and a sprinkle of cilantro for the most refreshing sip ever.

Blackberry Basil Moscow Mule

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that fresh basil can make almost anything better, including this must-make mule from Host the Toast. Perfect for the warmer months when you have berries and herbs aplenty, it takes less than five minutes to throw together.

If you love blackberries, make these next.

Pumpkin Apple Spice Mule

Pumpkin spice latte by day, pumpkin spice mule by night. This seasonal sip, courtesy of Natalie’s Orchard Island Juice Co., is all about the fall flavors, with pumpkin apple juice and crisp apple slices as a garnish. All that’s missing is a fire, a pair of flannel PJs and one of these hot cocoa recipes for the kiddos.

Maui Moscow Mule

Have you ever seen a more colorful cocktail? Correct answer: No. The Crumby Kitchen’s Maui Moscow mule, with layers of pink, purple and blue, makes us dream of white sand beaches and shady palm trees. But if a Hawaiian getaway isn’t in your future, throw your own taste-cation with these island-inspired recipes.
