Last Updated on February 5, 2022 by The Noms

Our best Moscow Mule recipe on our site. Warm caramel flavors blend so nicely with the ginger beer, and apple cider. Try this Caramel Apple Moscow Mule! Cheers!


With fall comes apples and our annual trip to the apple orchards in Nebraska City with the grandparents. Nebraska City is home to Arbor Day Farms (founding group of Arbor Day) and home to a group of long time orchards that grow some fantastic apples.  Of course we spend the day there, taking the kids apple picking, watching the kids sneak bite of apples fresh off the tree, and enjoying a nice fall day.


Also, anytime we are down at the orchards, we have to grab some of the fresh pressed apple cider, which always means it is officially fall at our house!

What Ingredients are Needed in our best Moscow Mule Recipe?

  • For the Caramel Apple Mule
    • Lime Juice
    • Apple Cider
    • Ginger Beer
    • Caramel Vodka
  • Caramel Vodka
    • Sea Salt
    • Vodka
    • Caramel Candies


One treat that our kids (technically even some of the grown kids!) always love to get when we visit the orchards is the fresh caramel apples that many offer in their snack shops. The fresh homemade caramel and tree fresh apples is an amazing combination. Of course we have been getting fresh orchard caramel apples since our kids were tiny, walking around with a caramel apple has become a tradition for our family in the fall.


Since we like making lots of seasonal cocktails to share with our readers, having a cocktail that is so fall related was a no brainer! So, we came up with this Caramel Apple Moscow Mule!


Caramel Apple Moscow Mule

For this drink we combine caramel infused vodka and the apple cider. This gives a fresh caramel apple flavor to the classic Moscow Mule cocktail. This might sound really sweet, but balancing out a bit of the sweetness with fresh lime juice also helps keep this version of a Moscow mule nice and in balance and keeping this cocktail from getting overly sweet.


If You Are Looking for More Ginger Cocktails, Try These!



The ginger beer works really well with the apple cider, giving just a hint of a spicy ginger hit to the sweet apple and caramel.  Perfect for sipping around a fire-pit or enjoying with a warm bowl of apple crisp!

If you are interested in a really easy way to make this cocktail, you can just buy a caramel flavored vodka off the shelf. However, if you really want to take this cocktail to the next level, you can make your own caramel infused vodka. Making your own lets you get the caramel flavor just how you like it. Also, if you add a little bit of sea salt to make it a salted caramel infused vodka! Recipe below for this Caramel Apple Moscow Mule!
