Drinks Food Holiday

Pomegranate Moscow Mule

IMG_8861Now that Thanksgiving is over it’s time to charge full speed ahead into the next holiday season, which happens to be my favorite time of year. I might get a few unsubscribes for admitting this but I cannot wait for it to snow! There is nothing like watching snowflakes slowly fall from the sky on a cool evening. It is just so magical. Sorry for anyone who hates winter and is dreading the snow.

IMG_8836I have a feeling this holiday season is going to be full of lots of laughs, extra cozy sweaters, much fun with friends and family, and of course good food and lots of alcohol. As a cheers to the good times coming, we have crafted this lovely pomegranate Moscow mule. It is the perfect drink to share with friends and family this winter.

IMG_8840I love a good mule. They are simple to make and delicious to drink. Plus, they come in the cutest, most festive mugs. Although, admittedly, the mugs were a pain in my behind when taking these pictures. I’ll forgive them because just look how cute!IMG_8885

Anyway… back to this delicious drink I know you are dying to try. The pomegranate adds a fun, festive flare to the traditional Moscow mule. We crushed up pomegranate using a mortar and pestle and added the juice to the mule. It couldn’t be any simpler!IMG_8785

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup pomegranates
  • 1/2 cup ginger beer
  • 1 shot of vodka
  • 1-1 lime wedges
  • Dash of sugar (we used raw turbinado sugar)

Directions:

  1. Start by crushing the pomegranates. We used a mortar and pestle to do this. Note – you could also buy pomegranate juice instead of using fresh pomegranate seeds.
  2. Add the juice from the pomegranates to your cup and then pour the ginger beer and vodka in as well.
  3. Squeeze the juice from the wedge of the lime into the drink and then add a dash of sugar to sweeten. Garnish with fresh pomegranates and another lime wedge if desired.
