Apple Cider Moscow Mules


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!


Apple Cider Moscow Mules

Servings 1


  • 1 oz ginger flavored vodka
  • 2 oz apple cider (store bought or homemade)
  • juice of one small lime wedge
  • 1/2 cup good quality ginger beer to top off (adjust to taste)
  • cinnamon to sprinkle


  1. In a copper mug, add the vodka, apple cider and lime juice.

  2. Fill the glass with ice, sprinkle cinnamon over the ice, then top off with ginger beer.

  3. Stir well and garnish with an apple slice and cinnamon stick.

      Hey Lindsay! We picked them up when we were in Charleston. We actually bought them at the bar because we liked them so much too and they sell them there! It was at a place called Rarebit. I’m sure they would ship some to you 🙂

    Mmmmm– this seems like a perfect version of the moscow mule for the colder months. This would probably also be a good take on the Kentucky Mule too (bourbon instead of vodka)!

    I brought these to a dinner party & while I’m sure the original is amazing, I made a few tweaks to taste. I used plain vodka & added apple Brandy. If you fancy trying a variation if this, I highly recommend the changes. Everyone loved them and it’s an awesome cocktail for this time of year. Thank you so much for this recipe!

    Ginger vodka has been very hard for me to find. Everywhere I go/call, they either don’t sell it, or they’re out! Is there a good substitute to use in case I can’t find it at all? And has anyone successfully made this into a big batch/pitcher drink?
