This apple cider mule is festive and easy Autumn cocktail! This seasonal spin on the Moscow mule features cider and ginger beer. (Non-Alcoholic of course)
It pairs apples and ginger in a bubbly, effervescent mix that looks perfectly cosy nestled in a copper mug. Why stop drinking the mule when the temperature starts to drop?
But here’s the thing. You’ve got to have just enough cider so you can taste its sweet flavour, but not so much that it waters down the ginger beer and spirit. We tinkered with the ratios to make this apple cider mule the perfect balance of the Moscow mule elements:
Non-Alcoholic Apple Cider
Pour ¼ cup Non-Alcoholic spirit (we recommend: Lyre’s Dry London Spirit, Ovant Grace or Seedlip Garden 108), 1 tablespoon lime juice, and ¼ cup apple cider into a copper mug or serving glass of your choice. Add about ⅓ cup ginger beer. Add ice and garnish with lime. Done!
When you are hosting for a party, the last thing you need is worry about exact measurements.
Here are our tips:
Mix up 8 servings without the ginger beer. That would be 2 cups Non-alcoholic Spirit, 2 cups Non-Alcoholic Apple cider, and ½ cup lime juice (always use fresh). Then in each glass of your choice, pour ½ cup of the mixer and 1/3 cup Ginger beer.
You can always freeze the Ginger beer into ice cubes so the drinks aren’t diluted – no one wants a watered-down bland drink at a party.
Drinking out of ice-cold copper brings another sensory element. The copper turns ice cold with the drink, giving another element to a sip. You can really taste the difference! But, use whatever you have on hand, a highball glass will do perfectly.
