apple cider moscow mule mug recipe

It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Los Angeles and this cocktail certainly tastes like it. I love a standard Moscow Mule but I wanted to put a seasonal twist to the drink and it’s amazing. The addition of apple cider pairs perfectly with the ginger beer while the cinnamon adds a lovely fall aroma. And of course, I couldn’t make this delicious drink without mugs they are traditionally served in.

I purchased my moscow mule mug from this company on Amazon because they sell authentic copper mugs with no inner linings. With the holidays coming up, these cool mugs will make excellent entertaining gifts for both men and women.
