Michigan Mistletoe Mule

Here’s a fun take on the Moscow Mule, the Michigan Mistletoe Mule. Sub out the Ginger Beer in a traditional mule with the signature Michigan beverage Vernor’s, and you’ve got a fun and gingery holiday cocktail. The addition of tart cherry juice, cranberries, and ginger makes a delicious winter cocktail.

Michigan Mistletoe Mule

The mule, with its spicy ginger beer, has quickly become one of my favorite sips at a local restaurant here in Manassas. While I hate to see warm weather nights fade, the idea of some cozy evenings inside concocting & sipping cocktails sounds like a fun change of seasons. Here’s my take on the mule for a winter libation. Word of warning, don’t garnish this Mistletoe Mule with real mistletoe, as it’s poisonous.

The Michigan Mistletoe Mule is a delightful holiday cocktail that captures the essence of Michigan’s flavors. To mix this festive drink, you’ll need the following ingredients: 2 oz of tart cherry juice, Vernor’s ginger soda, Tito’s Vodka (gluten-free), Grand Marnier, 5 fresh cranberries for garnish, 1 slice of fresh ginger for garnish, 1 cinnamon stick for garnish, and 1 fresh lime wedge for garnish. Here’s how to create this seasonal masterpiece:
