This Christmas Mule is a festive twist on the classic Moscow Mule, starring cranberry juice, peppermint schnapps, and ginger beer for a merry holiday treat.


  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce peppermint schnapps
  • 1 ounce 100% all natural cranberry juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon simple syrup (omit if using sweetened cranberry juice*)
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • For the garnish: Rosemary sprig, peppermint stick (optional)


  1. In a copper mug or glass, pour in the vodka, cranberry juice, peppermint schnapps, and simple syrup. Add the ginger beer.
  2. Add ice and garnish with a rosemary sprig and peppermint stick, if desired. Serve immediately.


*100% cranberry juice has no sugar added. If using cranberry juice cocktail, omit the simple syrup. You can also add the simple syrup to taste if you prefer a more tart drink.

**Tip: For advanced prep, pour together the 8x the recipe in a pitcher. Then pour a little over 3 ounces in each glass and top with 4 ounces ginger beer.
