Apple Cider Mules

Apple Cider Mules 2



3/4 c Vodka

1 1/2 c Apple Cider

Blake’s used here – just go with the local good stuff!

1 Bottle Ginger Beer

I use Reed’s All Natural. It’s great even on its own.

Squeeze of Lemon Juice

Lots of Ice

Fresh Cranberries & Apple Slices for garnish

I keep fresh cranberries in the freezer for drink garnishes all season long.


2 Copper Mule Mugs


Long Cocktail Spoon


  1. Fill each mug 3/4 of the way with ice. Crushed is best if you want to get fancy.
  2. Mix cider, vodka and lemon squeeze in pitcher. Pour between two mugs.
  3. Top each with ginger beer straight from the bottle.
  4. Float cranberries and apple slices on top.



Because you’re Fall AF but it’s almost October and it’s still 90 degrees out. You’re determined to make a bonfire and enjoy it, even if it means a cold shower right after.

A few months from now when it’s too cold outside, you’ll bring this drink inside and pretend you’re back to that one September when it was too effing hot for apple-pie-baking.

Bonus: if you’re lucky enough to live in a killer apple state like I do – you’ve got another way to squeeze the goodness into your day (and night.)

We hope you enjoy these as much as we did last weekend!
