We had to put the half gallon of apple cider we have from our apple picking adventure to good use, so Moscow Mules it is!! As much as I love a standard Moscow Mule and our popular Blueberry Moscow Mules I wanted to put a fall twist on it and this one is by far my favorite yet! An Apple Cider Moscow Mule with sprinkled cinnamon, apple cider, a little lime, ginger vodka and ginger beer!! Fall in a cup and until our hand-pressed apple cider is gone, it’s my go-to cocktail! The cinnamon adds a beautiful fall aroma and the apple and ginger are a match made in cocktail heaven. Of course, the bonus is that they’re beyond easy to make! No shaking or muddling, just pour and enjoy!
