Fall Cider Mules

The Moscow mule just got a yummy upgrade for fall! This is a fun new way to enjoy one of our favorite drinks. Warm, subtle spice from apple cider is brightened up by fresh lime juice and a little "bite" from the ginger and Tito's® vodka-it's perfectly sweet and refreshing.

Ginger Syrup:

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • ½ cup chopped fresh ginger


  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 ½ cups sparkling apple cider

  • 1 cup vodka (such as Tito's®)

  • 1 medium lime, cut into 4 wedges

  • 4 cups ice, or as needed


  1. Combine sugar, water, and ginger in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, and stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and strain into a pitcher; discard solids. Let cool completely, 30 to 45 minutes.

  2. Pour 1/4 cup cooled ginger syrup into a separate pitcher; reserve remaining ginger syrup for a later use. Stir in lime juice, sparkling cider, and vodka. Pour into 4 ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime wedges.

Cook's Note:

The syrup can be made up to 2 weeks ahead. Add cider just before serving to preserve the effervescence. You can also have the ingredients available and can make this recipe in single servings, rather than in a batch.
