Let the holiday decorations and cheer infuse right into your cocktail with this cranberry version of a Moscow mule.

I know I already shared a cranberry sangria to make for the holidays but who says you can only have one? For #CranberryWeek I also added a cranberry twist to a Moscow Mule. It really just means I substituted some of the ginger beer for cranberry juice – it’s as simple as that. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary speared through some fresh cranberries as it’s festive AF. You could also garnish them with sugared cranberries!

Do you have a festive cocktail you make for the holidays?

Tried your stuffed cabbage(using bell peppers) recipe and it was great. We had so many peppers I had to pick due to upcoming frost. Had to do something with them so this is where they ended up.
