Cranberry Moscow Mule {non-alcoholi and alcoholic}

This post may contain affiliate links and I was offered free product for sharing my opinions with you. I appreciate your support and only give you my honest opinion.

Refreshing enough for summer and a nice red and green for the holidays, this Cranberry Moscow Mule is perfect year-round!

With Christmas just days away, a Cranberry Moscow Mule would be the perfect holiday cocktail in the traditional copper mug, or make a large batch for a beautiful red and green punch. It tastes delicious in non-alcoholic form, but add a bit if vodka or a ginger beer to make it even more of a celebration.

I love an easy and delicious cocktail and this three-ingredient Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Moscow Mule is both!  Or go traditional with the Traditional Moscow Mule recipe with some cranberry added. Yum!

Cranberry Moscow Mule {non-alcoholic and alcoholic}

Cranberry Moscow Mule

4oz Cranberry Juice

8oz Ginger Ale (or Ginger beer)

Lime wedge – 1/4 – 1/6 of the lime

1 oz vodka (optional)

Cranberry Moscow Mule {non-alcoholic and alcoholic}

Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Moscow Mule

Mix cranberry juice and ginger ale and serve over ice.

Squeeze the lime wedge over the glass, throw the wedge inside and stir.

 

Serve inside the adorable copper Moscow Mule mug. I got mine from Inspired Basics. They gave me this one free for this review, but I definitely need a whole set. I’m in love! How cute are they!?

These cups require a little care, but are so cute I think they’re worth it. They are 100% copper and come with a lifetime guarantee, but they should be hand-washed and you should be careful to rinse out acidic drinks.

So, take care of those mugs before passing out from too many Moscow Mules! 

The cups get very cold! My husband came in from the garage and I gave him a sip and he said his lips nearly stuck to the glass. My drink was definitely kept cold for quite a while.

Traditional Moscow Mule – with cranberry

For a more traditional Moscow Mule – and the alcoholic version – mix vodka with other ingredients, before adding the lime.

The traditional Moscow Mule calls for Ginger Beer, but I’m still unclear on whether that is the soft drink or fermented ginger beer…

Had my husband found it at the store, we would have tried this with Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale, which I have yet to try. Have you tried Not Your Father’s Root Beer? Yum! …and dangerous, tastes just like root beer!

Enjoy your Cranberry Moscow Mule during the holidays, summer, or anywhere in between.

I think I found my new go-to cocktail – in non-alcoholic or alcoholic form!

Healthy, Simple Snack for Apple Season with Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter

So, for many of you Fall is all about Pumpkin, but there are those of us out there who feel differently. I know, who on earth would know from looking at Facebook or Instagram? Pumpkin is everywhere! People are obsessed!

I definitely enjoy pumpkin, but I also feel like Fall is equally about the apples. Apple picking, visiting an orchard, the easiest on-the-go snack, apple pie – I could go on and on… and I almost did.

We love apples because they are the original 100 calorie snack pack. Why do we buy that crap when an apple can be thrown easily in any bag and eaten on the go anytime?

My kiddos love apples and we knew just what to do with our Might Nut Powdered Peanut Butter when it came in the mail to review as a part of the Sweat Pink community. This is so simple, but we tried to take it just a little bit beyond being boring. You just can’t mess with a classic!

Healthy & Thrifty Sweet Potato, Cauliflower & Turkey Meatballs {Recipe}

Delicious, sweet and full of as much veggies as turkey, these meatballs are amazing and I can’t get enough!

I can cook the heck out of all different veggies and our family loves them, but coming up with ideas for our protein is always a struggle for me. When it comes to the main course, I blank. My goal is to find more ideas and more healthy and frugal ways to stretch our protein whenever I can.

I love these meatballs! Plenty of meat, but still packed with veggies and tons of flavor! You could serve them traditional spaghetti and meatballs, eat them plain, or even make them into patties – just a word of warning, they end up a bit softer because of all the veggies and when we tried grilling like a burger it was not an easy task.
