It’s that light-sweater-pumpkin-flavored time of year again! And this all means Fall wines and festive cocktails. The lovely ladies of Sparkle + Toast shared with me a fun festive cocktail recipe that’s absolutely de-liciousss and something you can easily try at home yourself! It’s perfect for holiday parties or family get togethers. This is a spin of a “Moscow Mule” with fresh Blood Orange and Pomegranate juice, garnished with sugared cranberries and rosemary-YUM!
Pomegranate-Blood Orange Mule:
Ingredients (for 2 drinks):
- 1 Blood Orange
- 3 oz. Vodka
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 (12oz) bottle of ginger beer
- Fresh pomegranate seeds, blood orange slices, rosemary sprigs, and some fresh cranberries dipped in lemon juice and then lightly rolled in sugar, all for garnish
Instructions (makes 2 drinks):
In a cocktail shaker, combine the blood orange juice, vodka, and pomegranate juice together and shake well to combine. Then, distribute the mixture evenly over 2 chilled copper mule mugs, with ice. Then, top off each mug with ginger beer, and garnish with a cranberry/blood orange rosemary skewer.
