Cran-Apple Moscow Mule with a Lemon Rimmer

I enjoy a good cran-apple drink during the winter months.  There is something about those flavors that seem festive and can be adapted for fun and easy party drinks.  I recently, recieved a pair of Moscow Mule mugs, so when Stirrings asked me to try their cocktail mixers and rimmer garnishes, I knew I had to figure out a way to combine the two.  

This recipe I created flirts with a traditional moscow mule base in that is has vodka, ginger and citrus.  But since we are in the winter months I added some cranberry and apple flavors and some fizz just to be festive.  If you like sweeter drinks, I think this will be right up your alley.  I used Stirrings Apple Martini Mix and their Lemon Drop Rimmer to garnish.  

 Ingredients:
1 shot Stirrings Apple Martini Mix
1 shot cranberry juice
1 shot vodka
1 shot ginger ale
Ice
Garnish rim with Lemon Drop Martini Rimmer and cranberries.

Instructions:
1. Garnish rim of drinking glass with Lemon Drop Martini Rimmer.
2. Mix liquids and pour over ice.
3. Serve with cranberries.
