In addition to this being a great cocktail recipe, it is also packed with health benefits. Who said you couldn’t have your cake and eat it too?? The one ingredient that all Mule cocktails have in common is ginger beer.

Ginger beer is known to lower cancer risk, relieve nausea, improve digestion, and has anti-bacterial properties. But it doesn’t stop there. Cranberries are considered to be great for boosting your immune system and improving digestion. Just how I like my cocktails…great-tasting and healthy. 🙂

Making the “Cape May” Cranberry Moscow Mule:

Begin by rinsing your fresh cranberries, after adding them to the mule mug, muddle them with fresh lime juice.

Muddling cranberries

Fill your mug with ice then add 3 ounces of your preferred vodka — but don’t be afraid to add a little more if you like your cocktails with a little “strength” on them.

Top everything off with ginger beer and you’re all set!

For a quick tip, after you pour the ginger beer, using a bar spoon, bring some of the muddled cranberries to the top so you can enjoy the combination of flavors a little better.
