Your typical Moscow Mule is made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and some tart flavor from lime juice—it’s a decidedly summer cocktail that is super refreshing on even the hottest day! My autumn version is a bit cozier and warming, thanks to swapping out the vodka for Crown Royal’s Regal Apple Whiskey. I’m not a huge whiskey fan, but this flavored whiskey makes just the perfect base for fall cocktails. It tastes like candy!
I mix the Crown Royal with ginger-flavored kombucha (my twist on the ginger beer) and fresh-pressed apple cider. The end result is a cocktail that tastes like a über-refreshing caramel apple! I picked up some classic, hammered copper Moscow Mule mugs at Meijer to serve these in.
