Perfect for the holidays, this Apple Cinnamon Moscow Mule is all the things we love at this time of the year. Apples, spices, and refreshing cocktails — and with a few simple ingredients, this easy recipe is ready to sip in minutes.


Units Scale
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 3 oz. apple cider
  • dash ground cinnamon
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • dash fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. spiced simple syrup, optional
  • ginger beer

For the spiced simple syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cinnamon sticks


  1. For the simple syrup, add the sugar and water in a small saucepot. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add cinnamon sticks. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for 10 minutes until the syrup thickens. 
  2. Remove the pot from the heat and allow the syrup to cool completely. Discard cinnamon sticks. Syrup can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator and used as needed.
  3. Add vodka, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, apple cider, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 15 seconds.
  4. Add ice to the mule cocktail mug and pour the cocktail over the ice. Top off with ginger beer.
  5. Garnish with sliced apples and cinnamon sticks.


When it comes to blended cocktails, any decent vodka will do. My favorite vodka is Tito’s, Wheatley, and Ivanabitch.
