Apple Pie Moscow Mule

We all know and love Moscow Mules for their refreshing, and slightly spicy taste, thanks to the ginger beer. I decided to give the popular cocktail a fun autumn makeover that's perfect for sipping all season long. 

Staying true to the original Moscow Mule, I kept the ginger beer, and added a little bit of apple cider, which complements the cider nicely. The flavored vodka really makes this drink work; with apple pie vodka, the cocktail really tastes like a drinkable apple pie! Caramel vodka would also work if you can't get your hands on apple pie vodka. 



To really top off the drink, I garnished with fresh apple slices and cinnamon sticks. You could even start the drink with a couple apple slices and muddle them a bit to get more fresh apple taste. For delicious gourmet apples delivered straight to your door, check out the fresh selection at Harry & David. 

This drink can easily be made into a mocktail by substituting the vodka for more apple cider (or ginger beer). Whip up a big batch for your next tailgate, bonfire or other favorite fall event! 



  • 4 ounces apple cider
  • 4 ounces apple pie vodka (or caramel vodka in a pinch)
  • 1 bottle ginger beer

Fill two copper mugs with crushed ice.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the apple cider and vodka. Shake to combine. Pour half of the apple cider mixture into each mug.

Top each mug with ginger beer until full. Garnish with cinnamon sticks and apple slices.

Makes: 2 drinks
