Part 1: The Bitter Winter Mule
This cocktail uses cranberry syrup and Campari to add a bitter but sweet twist to the traditional Moscow Mule Cocktail. Garnish with a smoking rosemary sprig for some extra winter warmth and aroma. Recipe below!
Fill a copper mug 3/4 full with ice.
1.5 oz Your Choice of Vodka
.75 oz Campari
Cranberry Syrup to taste (recipe below) - we like 2 oz
Stir until all ingredients are combined and syrup is incorporated. Top with Moscow Mule 𝑇𝑟𝑢𝑒 𝑂𝑟𝑖𝑔𝑖𝑛𝑎𝑙 Hard Seltzer. Garnish with a smoking rosemary sprig.
To make Cranberry Syrup:
Reduce 12 ounces of a good quality cranberry juice, and a handful of fresh cranberries by about 2/3. While still hot, weigh the reduced liquid with a kitchen scale, or measure with a heat proof mixing cup and blend in an equal amount of white sugar. Stir well until fully incorporated and all sugar has broken down. Will keep covered in the refrigerator for two-three weeks.
