Cranberry Ginger Moscow Mule

Cranberry Ginger Moscow Mule {Beard and Bonnet}

I am so excited to be visiting on A Brown Table today sharing one of my favorite holiday cocktails while Nik is on vacation! I have been a fan of Nik’s inspiring photography and recipes for quite some time and am honored to have one of my own gracing the pages of his site.

Cranberry Ginger Moscow Mule {Beard and Bonnet}

When I think about food during the Christmas holidays a few things come to mind – cookies, steaming mugs of hot chocolate, appetizers, and cocktails. Unlike Thanksgiving, where my family and friends sit down to huge decadent feasts, in December, we tend to host cocktail parties with tables loaded down with tapas and humongous homemade cookie platters. That’s normal right?

This cocktail has been in the works at my house for a few weeks now and I have to say it is one of my favorite cocktail creations to date. It is so easy to sip and the flavors of cranberry, vanilla, citrus, and ginger are a match made in heaven.

      Thanks Kate! I think another evening or two of cocktails will be fine. I plan to OD on veggies after the New Year. Ha!

    I just left a comment over on A Brown Table but then realised that that will probably not go to you. At least not directly. So I made my way here :-).
    The recipe sounds amazing and I’m planning of making this the drink for this year’s Thanksgiving. It’s the perfect combination of flavours I love.
    I’ve got one question though. The recipe says: 1/4 freshly squeezed orange juice. Is that the juice of one 1/4 orange? Or 1/4 cup of orange juice? Help please 🙂

      Oh goodness! I am so glad you reached out to me – it is 1/4 cup 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

        Just wanted to report back and thank you again. We served these as aperitif for our belated Thanksgiving dinner last night and they were not only a huge hit with the guests but also might just be my favourite cocktail now. I have some of the sirup left, so I get to enjoy a few more of these in the next days. The vanilla really makes this. So good!

    Just wondering how many people does this recipe serve? I would like to make it in a big pitcher and let guests serve their own.

      Well, the cranberry vanilla syrup recipe itself yields 2 cups once it has cooked down and been strained,then each drink requires 3 tablespoons of syrup so…each batch of syrup will make approximately 10 drinks. 🙂 Hope your guests enjoy it!

    Can’t wait to try these! Just made the syrup … It is quite thick… Is that how it is suppose to be? Do you shake in a shaker or just mix with a cocktail spoon? Thanks!

      Alison, I just stir it in with spoon, it will dissolve pretty easily 🙂
