I know, I know, here I am with another drink recipe for you.

But what can I say?

The holidays have me feeling festive.

And by festive, I mean the desire to be tipsy after 5 PM on a fairly regular basis.

Between the cold weather and all the get-togethers we’ve been having as of late, life just seems a little more jolly with a glass of firewater in my hand.

This is typical for me this time of year, and I usually I stick to what I know – like a few choice wines or the occasional mixed drink – but this year I’ve really been trying to expand my drink selections.

For example, I made an Orange Creamsicle Cocktail a few weeks ago.

And did you see the Chocolate Cream Pie Martini?

I’ve also been stepping out of my comfort zone and ordering the most popular drinks available at a restaurant, no matter what it is, and that is how I stumbled across the amazingness (a word? Sure, why not!) that is a Moscow Mule.

The Moscow Mule seems to be all the rage this year, and Longhorn Steakhouse has a few tasty selections on their menu right now.

I ordered one of them on a whim and absolutely fell in love with it, so much so that I made it my super nerdy foodie quest goal to make the drink at home, complete with the stylish copper mugs that do such a perfect job of keeping your drink chilly.

Want a set of these mugs? You can pick up a nearly identical set here.

However, I did want to spice the drink up a bit – for no particular reason other than I just like fruity drinks – and that is where the cherry flavoring comes from.

Moscow mules are perfect on their own, but when you add sweet cherry flavoring?

It really kicks it up a notch.

Plus, I’ll take any excuse to dunk cherries in my drink eat maraschino cherries off a toothpick all classy-like.

So here’s to the holidays!

  1. I love Moscow Mules.. so this looks like a really fun version to switch it up! (I actually had a lychee version this weekend and it was amazing!)

  2. You hit it right on the head, mules are all the rage right now. However, I LOVE it. All these recipes make me want to keep making drinks, or have a party to just have a Mule bar! Love this recipe, I bet the cherries add just the right amount of sweet.

  3. My husband loves moscow mules, in fact, he wants to create one for me to put on my site ;). I’m totally making this for him!

  4. I was just browsing moscow mule glasses wondering if someone would buy them for me for Christmas ha. I love this cocktail – nice twist on the classic drink!

  5. OMG yum Yum YUMMY!!

    This has all my favorite things in it love love love the recipe.
    Also my last name means cherry this may very well be my new signature drink <3

  6. There’s expanding data towards the immuno defensive anti-malignant attributes of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which happens in highest levels in dairy from grass-fed cows.

  7. 1) nice recipe
    2) do you muddle in the cherries at the beginning?
    3) only 1 ounce of vodka? 😉
    4) loved your Q ginger beer call…check out Fever Tree if you haven’t yet. Its a must.
    5) I bet this would be just as delicious is you swapped rum with vodka.

    We’ll have to give this a rip soon… 🙂

    Keep up the good work Chrisy.
