Okay, so it may still only be October, but if you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, you’re already probably starting to plan what you’re going to make for dinner. But many people make the mistake of only pre-planning their food menu and forgetting about drinks, which can be one of the most fun parts of the holiday. If that’s the case, don’t worry, we’re here to help you with the perfect, foolproof Thanksgiving cocktail: apple cider Moscow mule. Yum!


  • Hard apple cider
  • Ginger beer
  • Citrus vodka
  • Lime
  • Cinnamon


Combine ice cubes, 4 ounces each of hard apple cider and ginger beer, 1.5 ounces of whatever citrus vodka you have laying around, half a lime’s worth of lime juice, and a dash of ground cinnamon in a cocktail shaker. Shake well.

Pour the mixture into a copper cup already full of crushed ice. Garnish with a lime wedge, a cinnamon stick, and/or a slice of apple. Whatever feels seasonal and right to you.

Enjoy (responsibly, of course)!
