It’s cocktail time! This time of year gets me excited to make fall drinks and cook and bake fall food. This Fall Flavored Moscow Mule is something I tried at a local restaurant. I liked that is was refreshing and not overly sweet. If you like the original Moscow Mule, you will love this fall version because it has a hint of fall flavors that really makes it perfect for this time of year.
To be totally honest, I am always looking for an excuse to break out my copper mugs. I love to serve drinks in them because they are so pretty and they keep the drinks super cold. If you have not invested in a set yet, you must. Even if you don’t use them for cocktails, they are beautiful and perfect for any drink you serve. They will be the “bling” on our Thanksgiving tablescape this year.
Ingredients For A Fall Flavored Moscow Mule:

- Three Olives Apples and Pears Vodka
- Ginger Beer
- Copper Mugs (You need to finally invest in a set of these!)
- Muddler (you could use a pestal and mortar set as well)
A cocktail recipe really depends on how you like it. I am going to share how I made our Fall Flavored Moscow Mules, but you can change the recipe to how you like your cocktail.
The first thing I did was add ice to the copper mugs. Then, I muddled a few mint leaves and added them to the mugs. Next, I cut lime wedges to use as garnishes on the sides of the mugs. Then, I squeezed about a quarter of a lime inside the copper mugs. Now it is time for the liquor. I added about a shot and a half of Three Olives Apples and Pears Vodka to each mug and topped them off with Ginger Beer.
That’s it! It is so easy to make.
This Fall Flavored Moscow Mule is a fun fall twist on the traditional drink. I like to make something different when we entertain and this will be the cocktail served this fall and on Thanksgiving!
