Moscow mules are one of my favorite summer drinks. They’re so refreshing and light, making them easy to drink on a nice warm day. Although we have had an unusually warm winter, it’s just not the same, which is why I decided to try a more festive version this winter. For my Mistletoe Mule (or Moscow Yule, ha!), I added pomegranate and rosemary for a red and green touch. I also charred a lime wheel for garnish. The result is a festive take on a traditional favorite. This one’s sure to be a hit!
