How do you make an Apple Pie Moscow Mule?
The Apple Pie Moscow Mule starts with the same ingredients as the original Moscow Mule that introduced vodka to the USA.
The drink was first invented in 1941 and in its most simple form, contains vodka, ginger beer and lime.
The Moscow Mule’s defining feature is that it is almost always served in a copper mug.
Why is this Apple Vodka cocktail served in a copper mug?
Well, of course, you don’t have to serve your Moscow Mule in a copper mug but if you have one, it will keep your drink colder for much longer and some purists maintain that it improves the taste of the drink.
You can buy good quality copper mugs at most home goods stores, I actually bought my ones from Amazon and they were a good price and are great quality.
These are the ones I use in the pictures on this page.
What’s In The Apple Pie Moscow Mule?
In addition to the regular Moscow Mule ingredients of vodka, ginger beer and lime, fresh apple cider is what makes this drink so delicious and perfect for fall.
- Ginger Beer
- Fresh Apple Cider
- Apple slices and/or cinnamon stick for garnish
