The ONLY holiday cocktail recipe that you need this year has finally arrived! That’s right, my Pomegranate Moscow Mules are a delicious, refreshing cocktail that is perfect for the holiday season. It’s bursting with fresh fruit and bright herbs for the ultimate cocktail recipe. Plus, this recipe can easily be made non-alcoholic, for a refreshing drink that everyone can enjoy!
Friends, let’s be honest: the holiday season can be incredibly stressful. Between the cooking, holiday shopping, and visits with family, on top of all of our other obligations, there is no shortage of things to do during the holiday season. Which is why a cocktail is not only welcomed, but required at the end of a long day!
There are so many amazing holiday cocktail recipes out there; from my Apple Cider Whiskey Smash to my Christmas Margaritas, there are no shortage of delicious holiday cocktail recipes. But I have to say, this one may just be my favorite recipe yet.
It’s sweet without being too sweet, it’s refreshing without feeling overpowering, and it’s even perfect as a mocktail. Is there anything better than that?! Plus, you only need five ingredients to bring this cocktail recipe to life, which makes it so simple and easy to whip up, anytime. I can’t wait to make this cocktail with Thanksgiving dinner. I know my family will love it, and yours will too!
With just a few simple ingredients (that you may already have on hand), this cocktail comes to life in a breeze!
And if you prefer to make this recipe alcohol-free, then a few simple and easy swaps will turn this cocktail into a mocktail!
Simply omit the Vodka and replace it with a full cup of pomegranate juice (rather than the 3/4 cup that the recipe calls for) along with more ginger beer to top it off, and this delicious drink is perfect for the #sobercurious crowd!
Just like this recipe uses only five ingredients, it also comes together in only five steps! Simply start by adding the Vodka, lime juice, blood orange juice, and pomegranate juice to a cocktail shaker, along with a handful of ice. Next, place the cover on your shaker and shake it well, until all of the ingredients are fully combined.
Next, grab your Moscow Mule glasses and fill them with tons of crushed ice. This is important, so make sure to use a lot of ice!
Finally, divide your cocktail equally amongst the two glasses and top them off with ginger beer. Garnish with pomegranate arils, fresh mint, and/or blood orange slices, if desired, and enjoy! This recipe makes enough for two cocktails, but can easily be doubled or tripled if desired.
