This Cranberry Irish Mule is a winter twist on the Classic Moscow Mule! Irish whiskey, cranberry juice and ginger beer make this an ideal holiday cocktail.
You guys I know I just shared a cocktail last week, but did you know Thanksgiving is 1 week away??? ONE WEEK. Gah! I really didn’t want you to miss out on all the great cocktails that you could be drinking while preparing your turkey and stuffing. And don’t forget the sides. If you are still doing some last minute meal planning, check out these Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts and this Autumn Harvest Salad – they might need a space on your holiday table. Oh, and these Cranberry Brie Mini Tarts! If you show up with these plus Cranberry Irish Mules everyone will love you.

But back to this Cranberry Irish Mule. You may be familiar with the Irish Mule that I shared back in March, which is very much like the classic moscow mule but it swaps out the vodka for Irish whiskey. Then I changed it up for Fall and made and Apple Cider Irish Mule. Now the Irish Mule gets a winter makeover and becomes a Cranberry Irish Mule. I love this drink because it is super simple, festive and delicious. The copper mugs are pretty and they keep the drink ice cold, which is always a plus (You can find the mugs I have HERE – that is my affiliate link). I garnished with some cranberries but that is optional.
This Cranberry Irish Mule has a winter twist, perfect for the holidays!
