The moscow mule gets fall ready with an infusion of apple cider for a refreshing autumnal cocktail.
It’s fall y’all!
During the summer, I feel like the city kind of empties out on the weekends. Whether it’s to the beach, the lake or even to the golf course, us and most of our friends are out of town most summer weekends. While we are all well beyond back-to-school age, I still always feel like fall is similar to that back to school feeling in the way that you tend to stick around home more often. Boston is a great place to be in the fall so it makes perfect sense 🙂
With friends back in town and more free weekends to get together, fall is a perfect time for hosting some dinner parties. Whether you are going all out for a Friendsgiving or doing a couples night in, I think it’s fun to have a signature cocktail for the night. As someone who loves Moscow Mules and always has ginger beer in the house, a fall version of a mule was an easy choice for me. By adding in apple cider, you’ll have a perfect fall cocktail that is equal parts refreshing and cinnamon spice.
Cheers to fall- and all your upcoming entertaining! At least the cocktails can be easy 🙂
