Cranberries are a staple of the holiday season and since Thanksgiving is less than a week away it's time we start preparing for all of the imbibing needs. I can hardly believe it's almost time for my favorite holiday. I love Thanksgiving for all that it stands for. Spending time with your loved ones, reflecting on all that you are thankful for and indulging in the most delicious food you will have all year. It's only appropriate that as time continues on I've made the cocktails just as important as the food on my plate. No skimping on deliciousness for me. Recipe is below!
3 oz cranberry syrup
6 oz of Vodka
In a saucepan mix 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar. Chop 1 cup of cranberries and add to pan. Bring to a boil, stirring well and then pour into a clean container. Let cool and then keep in your fridge for up to a week.
Start by filling your mule cup with crushed ice. Pour cranberry syrup over ice, add vodka, squeeze in your lime wedge and stir! Top off with your ginger beer to taste!
Happy holidays, friends!
