New Year’s Eve for us is usually at home…..OK…..always at home.
But we like it that way!
I usually whip of some appetizers. The teens have sparkling grape juice, and I enjoy using the celebration as time to try a new cocktail. We settle in and watch a movie and shoot pool.
A few years ago, I had a Moscow Mule in Downtown Greenville, SC. They were so good as I’m usually just a wine drinker.
I’ve been on this quest to try to make one for quite sometime now. I really just gave up since I could never find Ginger Beer.
Over the summer, I was talking with a bartender, and she told me that I should look for Ginger Beer in your more gourmet stores with the sodas as it’s usually non-alcoholic!
Low and behold, I came across some while holiday shopping at Trader Joes.
I came across these Moscow Mule mugs in HomeGoods. They came in sets of 2. Chill your mug first.
No official mug? Just use a pretty cocktail glass.
You will need the following ingredients:
- Ginger Beer (look in the sodas – Trader Joes)
- Cranberry Juice Cocktail with lime
- fresh limes
Ginger Beer is a lot like Ginger Ale…just a little sweeter.
I filled the cup 1/2 way with crushed ice.
Then add your ingredients:
- 2 ounces Vodka
- 8 ounces of Ginger Beer
- 1/3 cup of the Cranberry Juice Cocktail with lime
- lime slice to garnish
Give it a stir and enjoy!
You can use regular cranberry cocktail without the lime added. Just squeeze in extra lime juice.
Enjoy! I wish you a very happy and blessed New Year! Be sure to check out the other New Year’s ideas below!
I’d love for you to follow along on social media!
