If you’ve been reading Sugar and Charm for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of Moscow Mules. We love adding a twist on the classic libation! We’ve created the best Gingerbread Moscow Mule ever and a charming cocktail-themed gift box.

A few years ago, we created our Apple Cider Mule, which was such a hit and now we’ve added a little holiday gingerbread twist to this one! This recipe has a delicious spicy kick to it, using gingerbread spices, and it’s perfect for winter months.

Serve it at your holiday brunch or a Christmas dinner. Create a build-your-own Moscow Mule station where guests can whip up their own cocktail, similar to our hot chocolate bar.

Why is a Moscow Mule Served In A Copper Mug?

The biggest benefit of using copper Moscow mule mugs is temperature. Chilled drinks in copper cups offer an extra-cool sensation, due to the metal quickly taking on the icy temperature of the cocktail. The rim of the mug becomes cold super quick, offering a frosty sensation on your lips. The cold metal is highly effective at insulating the cold temperature of any liquid.

A Great Christmas Cocktail

This Christmas Moscow Mule is the perfect addition for any festive party. Served in eye catching copper mugs, they instantly rise to the top of the cocktail list before even taking a sip! And then there’s the warm gingerbread spice, the cinnamon and the molasses, it’s Christmas in mug!

Tips For a Making a Gingerbread Mule

  • Best served in a copper mug, for a frosty cool cocktail.
  • Make sure you mix the drink well.
  • Avoid bottled lime juice, use freshly squeezed limes.
  • If making the gift box, make sure to use packing materials – such as shredded packing paper.
