A non-alcoholic, holiday version of the Moscow mule. It uses a cranberry shrub instead of lime and a splash of club soda instead of vodka. It's a perfect combination for an aperitivo or snack. If possible, serve with savory macarons as a garnish; thread each macaron onto a skewer, put two in each glass, and serve immediately.

Cranberry Shrub:

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine vinegar, water, and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cranberries, cardamom pods, allspice berries, and cinnamon stick; bring to a boil. Stir and cover until cranberries begin to pop, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir again, being careful that cranberries do not burn you as they pop. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar has dissolved and cranberries have released their juice, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and allow to steep for 15 minutes. Strain into a container, seal, and refrigerate. Discard pulp.

  • Fill 2 highball glasses halfway with ice. Add 1 fluid ounce cranberry shrub, 4 fluid ounces ginger beer, and 1 fluid ounce club soda to each glass. Stir well.

Cook's Note:

Savory macarons are traditional macaron cookies with liver pate filling or soft cheese filling, such as brie or Camembert.
