Is it happy hour yet, because pour me a mule!

Moscow mules are my VERY favorite cocktails to make at home and usually consist of ginger beer, vodka, and lime. This version adds some cranberry pineapple juice for a festive add-in!

Ginger beer is similar to ginger ale but with a sharper more vigorous burst of ginger. It’s very fizzy, and I personally love the spicy finish it has.

You can experiment with all types of juices or even infused vodka to create different flavor profiles. Another recent fave of mine is using cucumber vodka and watermelon juice to make a summer Moscow mule. 🍉 So refreshing!

Tips for making cranberry Moscow mule punch:

  • For garnish feel free to grab frozen or fresh cranberries. My store doesn’t get fresh cranberries until October, but they have frozen whole cranberries all year. Plus, it’s like adding ice to keep the drink cool without watering it down.
  • Consider serving in fun copper Moscow mule mugs like mine! If buying new isn’t possible, ask guests to BYOCC (bring your own copper cup to fill!) LOL! 😄
  • Speaking of copper mugs, they make unique holiday gifts as well! I think putting together a cute Moscow mule kit with mugs, vodka, and ginger beer would be an amazing adult gift idea.
  • Ginger beer can be found in the supermarket in the liquor department or with specialty sodas, club soda, etc. I like to buy diet ginger beer, however, it’s all a personal preference.
  • Need a non-alcoholic mocktail? Swap out the vodka for sparkling water, tonic, or club soda.

I love this idea for a party cocktail!

Making a punch version of this popular cocktail is an excellent idea to avoid making individual drinks for each person while entertaining. I had it all set up so I could just add ice to each glass and pour from a pitcher! So fun!

I love the fruity taste of the juice, yet it’s not overly sweet at all. And of course the vodka ginger beer fresh lime combo rocks.

    Moscow Mules are the thing I miss the very most about this pregnancy

    • Lina D

      Aw- Have a NA one! 😁

  2. southern

    Never had this!! Looks delicious!!

  3. Lisa

    I don’t like beer, would I like this?

    • Allison

      Ginger beer really tastes like ginger ale imo- unless I’m buying the wrong stuff 🙂

    • Lina D

      Ya it’s more like a soda but ginger-y.

    • bdubs

      Aldi has been carrying a ginger beer that’s non alcoholic this fall and it’s really good. It’s in a green bottle with a latching lid that’s reusable — a plus if you home brew or infuse your own vodka (ie Kahlua etc)

      • Ruth

        What does aldi charge for ginger beer?

    • Sarah

      Not beer at all. Think Root Beer. It has beer in the title but not real Beer. Ginger Beer to me is VERY Ginger-y (a lot more then ginger ale) and most brands have a spicy kick to the ginger.

    • JA

      I hate beer and I think this would be delicious. Ginger beer is more like a sharper ginger ale.

    • Amanda

      I dislike beer and don’t drink it. I have had these and I live them. More like a cocktail then beer.

    • Angie Haig

      I HATE beer but I love moscow mules and ginger beer. It does not taste like the typical beer at all.

    • Helen in Meridian

      Walmart has the moscow mules copper mugs.

  6. benneluke

    I suggest using Bundaberg brand ginger beer. Its all natural and very gingery. It also works wonders for an upset stomach!

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing!

    • Christina

      And available at Costco! Perfect for a crowd!

      • Lina D

        Oh nice! Never thought to look there 👌

  7. Darla

    I found a set of 2 copper mugs for $15 at TJ Maxx. Bought them for my Secret Santa at work. In the present i included 2 bottles of ginger beer and skipped the vodka because I work at a school!

    • Lina D

      Oh that’s super fun! Yes Tjmaxx is a great place to look for copper things. Just picked up my ice bucket from there!

  20. Nita

    Moscow mule is something I need to try but mojitos are my go-to drink and I’m not big on vodka drinks.. but I love ginger beer and lime! N those copper mugs are so cute! So definitely want to try this soon.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Nita! Mojitos are yummy too!

  21. Ti

    Wonder how this would taste without the ginger beer. I have a sensitive stomach and cannot do carbonated drinks. 🙁

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh hmm maybe try a flavored flat water ?

  22. fRAN

    Kroger in Ohio had cranberries for 29cents today! WOOOO

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow! Great deal!

  23. Ti

    Thanks, I’ll give that a try!
