some things are seasonal. and some things are just too good to say goodbye to when the seasons change. so you just adapt.
in this case, I’ve adapted my favorite summer cocktail to fit beautifully in my fall lineup. and it just so happens to be national apple cider day. I couldn’t even lie about that, google it.
let me introduce the apple cider moscow mule.
ingredients: vodka, ginger beer, apple cider, lime juice.
the magic: 2 parts vodka, 1/2 part lime juice, 2 parts apple cider, top with ginger beer [approx. 1/2 cup].
if you’re looking for a way to spice up your thanksgiving dinner, this may be the ticket.
[occasionally holidays need vodka. this is a festive + tasty way to bring it over to your
grandma’s dinner, without all the stares + judgement you’d receive by walking in with just a bottle of vodka].
there is no better time than the holidays to indulge, at least a little.
cocktails + desserts sign me up.
I limit my sweet-intake throughout the year, just so I can say “yes” to every sugary treat that I come within 5ft of during the holiday season.
today I’ve combined sweet treat + booze to make an indulgent cocktail. absolutely perfect for entertaining. picture this: your guests arrive to your house and are immediately met with enticing smells of brown sugar & cinnamon. then you hand them a mug of hot buttered rum, topped with whipped cream, and sprinkled with nutmeg. [mouth watering much?].
besides the fact that it’s delicious, the smell of this cocktail simmering in the crock-pot is enough for me to make it again. amazing.
“Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and its rich warm characters along with its vanilla and toffee notes pull this classic cocktail together. The temperature of the cocktail and the brown sugar allows for a welcoming rum taste while the butter leaves you with a sweet aftertaste”. – daniel thomas [brand ambassador]. sir I agree with you. and thanks for the recipe.
