Ingredients For A Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
For specific amounts, please refer to the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- caramel vodka
- fresh apple cider, chilled
- fresh lime juice
- ginger beer – chilled (I love the spiciness of Fever-Tree)
- ground cinnamon
- 2-4 cinnamon sticks (for garnish)
- apple slices (for garnish)
How To Make a Fall Moscow Mule
Whipping up this Caramel Apple Moscow Mule takes less than 5 minutes.
- For a seasonal Moscow Mule, simply combine the vodka, apple cider, and lime juice in a shaker. You don’t want to add the ginger beer to the shaker because it will lose its carbonation.
- Fill two copper mugs with crushed ice, add the cocktail mixture between them, and top off each mug with chilled ginger beer. Garnish your fall Moscow Mules with cinnamon sticks, and apple slices!
Need A Mocktail Version?
To make a non-alcoholic Caramel Apple Moscow Mule, simply omit the vodka and add a little caramel syrup (ginger beer like root beer, does NOT contain alcohol) and follow the same recipe serving over ice in a copper mug. Squeeze a lime wedge for a zesty twist. Garnish with apple slices and a dash of cinnamon for a refreshing mocktail that captures the essence of a classic Moscow Mule without the alcohol.
How To Serve a Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
You can serve these cocktails in a classic copper Moscow Mule mug, but totally not necessary. The icy cold copper mug keeps this libation perfectly chilled, something you can’t really pull off in a glass. The bonus is that they’re beyond easy to make! No muddling, just shake, pour, and enjoy!
Enjoy around a bonfire or pregame tailgating with a big bowl of chili……even Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a taste of fall in every sip.
Make A Fall Cocktail Without Caramel Vodka
Yes, you can still enjoy a delicious Caramel Apple Moscow Mule without caramel vodka. You can either use regular vodka for an Apple Cider Moscow Mule! Or add a little caramel syrup or caramel-flavored coffee syrup to your cocktail for a similar caramel flavor. Adjust the quantity to your taste preference.
So join me as we say
come on hello fall…….. before we have to say goodbye – I’ll drink to that!
