This Apple-Cranberry Moscow Mule Is a Perfect Thanksgiving Cocktail

While wine and beer are perfectly fine accompaniments to Thanksgiving dinner, I love the idea of serving a festive cocktail — one that highlights seasonal produce and tastes like fall in a glass. This cranberry-apple Moscow Mule definitely fits the bill.

Traditionally a Moscow Mule contains vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice, but this recipe swaps the lime for cranberry juice and sparkling apple juice. It’s festive and refreshing, with warm, spicy undertones from the ginger beer.

The best part? You can make it ahead in a pitcher! When you’re ready to serve, pour the prepared cocktail into ice-filled glasses and garnish with fresh cranberries and apple slices.
