Seriously tho, nothing beats autumn flavors. Things like ginger, cinnamon, rosemary, and apple.
Oh, what’s that? This Autumn Moscow Mule has all those flavors? OH OK.
The best Moscow Mule I ever had was on a hot night in Texas. Our best family friends from childhood had moved to Austin, and during college my mom, Rebe, and I went to visit them.
On Saturday night, their daughter, Rebe, and I got all dressed up and went downtown for the night. I remember donning a proper cowboy hat for the occasion, and sipping on apple pie moonshine as we got ready (side note it was insanely delicious).
After making friends at one of the bars, we and our new friends bar hopped until the wee hours of the night. And there, tucked away on a bar off of the notorious Sixth Street, I had the best Moscow Mule of my life.
The secret, the bartender told us, was using a darn good ginger beer. One with a big kick. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked on Moscow Mules.
Today I’m doing a take on a classic- a Moscow Mule with a twist. Aka a big splash of apple cider.
I also made it with my favorite vodka, Absolut Elyx. It’s incredibly smooth as a result of being distilled in copper barrels. Fitting, since this drink is served in a copper glass 🙂
Even better, it’s garnished with a giant sprig of rosemary, a few apple slices, and a cinnamon stick. And guess what guys? You can use the cinnamon stick AS A STRAW.
I know. I know I know I know. It’s amazing.
So seeing as it’s Thursday which basically means Friday, go to the grocery store and pick yourself up all the ingredients you need to make this Autumn Moscow Mule. You will not regret it. 🙂
