The Apple Cider Moscow Mule

I've been on a drink recipe kick these days - no worries, I'll be back to cranking out casseroles and appetizers in no time. Missing the food action? Head on over to "Not Your Mother's Meatloaf" for a great chilly fall evening dinner recipe.

Now, back to the program. I am absolutely in love with the original Moscow Mule, but putting a fall twist on an old classic raises it to another level. I didn't even think that was possible! Adding the crispness of the apple cider, the warm notes of the cinnamon, all with the spice of the ginger beer - that is fall flavor you will not forget.

There are a couple of different recipes out there, but this here is the perfect blend of autumn goodness.

Apple Cider Moscow Mule

2 ounces of Vodka
2 ounces of Trader Joe's Spiced Cider (regular cider or homemade cider will do)
Juice of one Lime wedge
1/2 cup of Trader Joe's Brewed Ginger Beer (Gosling's Ginger Beer is another good choice)
A sprinkle of Cinnamon
1 Cinnamon Stick (for garnish)
1 Apple slice (for garnish)

In your copper mug (because it's not the same without it), add the vodka, cider and lime juice together. Fill the mug with ice. Top with sprinkle of cinnamon. Then top the mug off with ginger beer (typically about a 1/2 of a cup). Stir the mixture well and garnish with cinnamon stick and apple slice.

Enjoy! Do you have a great twist on an old favorite? Do share!
