Christmas is my absolute favorite season! Twinkling lights, fancy parties, delicious treats and cozy nights in at home. If you are hosting a festive gathering this year, there is nothing like a signature drink to set the mood. I love the idea of having a tray set up ready for when your guests walk in, or serving them with appetizers before the games kick off. Either way, you are sure to have all your friends coming back for seconds

The Cranberry Mule is a fun take on the more traditional Moscow Mule. Perfect as a Thanksgiving cocktail, this drink calls for cranberry, ginger beer and spiced rum, then is topped with sugared cranberries as garnish.

Moscow Mules are all the rage (do people still say that?) at the moment, and this cranberry version is no exception. Even better if you have the copper mugs to serve it in!
