Common Questions About Making a Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
What is a caramel apple moscow mule?
A caramel apple moscow mule is a cocktail made by combining caramel vodka, apple cider, and ginger beer.
How many servings does this recipe make?
This recipe makes 1 serving but it can easily be increased if you are making it for a larger group.
Are moscow mules made with alcoholic ginger beer?
It depends on what you can find at the store/preference. Either non-alcoholic or alcoholic ginger beer will taste great!
Why does a moscow mule need a copper cup?
A copper cup is a great insulator which really retains how cold the drink is. While it is not necessary, it also looks really cool and makes it obvious which drink you are serving.
Why is it called a moscow mule?
The name “moscow mule” comes from the traditional addition of vodka to the alcoholic version and it’s association with Russia.
Should I use hard apple cider?
Again, totally up to your preference. I just non-alcoholic apple cider from the grocery store just because that’s what I prefer.
Can this recipe be made non-alcoholic?
Yes! Just substitute in 1/4 cup club soda for the vodka along with a drizzle of caramel sauce and use non-alcoholic ginger beer and apple cider. It will still taste great!
Ingredient Notes –
- Caramel vodka is what makes this a caramel moscow mule. If you don’t have any, you can also use plain vodka and drizzle the top of the drink with caramel sauce.
- I recommend a fresh pressed apple cider – I’ve tried this recipe with both apple juice and hard apple cider but I’ve found fresh pressed apple cider is the best.
- Ginger beer adds the bit and bubbles that we all love in a moscow mule. Fever tree is my preferred brand, but feel free to use what you have on hand.
