Hey Hey! Idriss here– exams are over, papers are done and the time for holidays has come! I have been thinking of making a Moscow mule recipe to celebrate with my wife and, this has just caught my attention. So, today’s recipe is going to be a Cranberry Moscow Mule.
Get excited man, this the best time of the year!
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a Canadian company named Moscow Mule Mugs. They make these 100% copper mugs and wanted me to create a recipe for them to showcase their beautiful product.
Naturally, I said yes!
On one hand, I get to support an awesome Canadian small business and on the other hand, badass mugs. They are totally awesome, don’t be surprised when you see more of them in the future.

To the recipe of the day now
The Moscow mule is probably one of the very first cocktails you should learn to make. It’s easy, straightforward, and quite satisfying. This recipe, however, is a little different and created with Canadian Christmas in mind.
Cranberry, rosemary and ginger beer. You may ask yourself why the rosemary? Because every time you go for a sip you inhale the rosemary goodness. Also, it looks bad-ass.
The Home Bartender’s tip:
Stick to unsweetened cranberry juice, if possible, as we are going to use maple syrup for this recipe as a sweetener and we don’t want the cocktail to be too sweet.
Cranberry Moscow Mule
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened cranberry juice.
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup. You can swap for agave.
- 1/4 cup vodka. I like mine strong, so this is to your discretion
- 1/2 Ginger beer 170 ml
- 1 fresh rosemary sprig
- 1 Orange slice to garnish.
- Combine, cranberry juice, maple syrup (or agave) and vodka. Place your ice cubes in your 2 mugs and pour over your mixture. Top with your chilled ginger beer and garnish with your grapefruit slice and rosemary sprig.
