Gingerbread Moscow Mule Recipe


If you’ve been reading Sugar and Charm for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of Moscow Mules. From our original Apple Cider Moscow Mule to our blueberry version, we love adding a twist on the classic libation! 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of the Moscow Mule and we’ve joyfully teamed up with the original creator, Smirnoff, to create a festive Gingerbread Moscow Mule and a charming Mule-themed gift box. The story goes…in 1941, John Martin, who owned Smirnoff, and Jack Morgan, owner of the Cock’n Bull pub in Los Angeles created the Mule to sell more ginger beer and to create a cocktail using a clear spirit, vodka! I love that my favorite cocktail was invented in Los Angeles! A few years ago, we created our Apple Cider Moscow Mule, which was such a hit and now we’ve added a little holiday gingerbread twist to this one! Our Gingerbread Moscow Mule recipe has a delicious spicy kick to it, using gingerbread spices, and it’s perfect for winter months! And since it’s the season for giving and one of my favorite gift ideas is curating a themed box, we created a Moscow Mule gift box. I loved picking out items to go in the box and it’s a thoughtful gift since it has everything you need to celebrate the holidays with the most charming Mules!
