Holiday Mules


  • Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • SPICED SIMPLE SYRUP
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 large piece ginger (5 inches or so), cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • MULES (quantities per drink)
  • crushed ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce spiced simple syrup
  • 1/4 cup sparkling water
  • sliced oranges
  • cinnamon sticks
  • fresh cranberries

Instructions

For The Syrup

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir the mixture. When the syrup just bubbles, turn the heat off and transfer the syrup and spices to a jar to cool. Keep covered in the fridge until ready to use.

For The Mules

  1. Fill a cocktail glass with crushed ice. Add vodka, simple syrup, and sparkling water or soda. Stir to combine with a cinnamon stick. Taste, and add more vodka or syrup to your preference. Garnish with oranges and fresh cranberries.

Notes

  • 1. I used raw sugar in these because it's what I had on hand, but any kind of sugar is fine! Raw or brown sugar does yield a slightly deeper flavor, which I like with the ginger.
  • 2. The quantities per drink above are approximate and don't yield a very sweet drink. Add more of the simple syrup if you'd like!
