I love Moscow Mules. They are delicious, refreshing, and great for cocktail hour. I love the flavors, so we wanted to come up with a delicious version we could drink even when we don’t want alcohol. This is a great alternative to serve at parties with friends who don’t drink.

Is Ginger Beer Non-Alcoholic?

If you have never had ginger beer, most isn’t alcoholic, even our kids like it. Some ginger beers are, like Crabbies. But, you should give ginger beer a try!

It is much more gingery and spicy than ginger ale. Ginger ale will NOT be a substitute for ginger beer in this recipe. Ginger ale would be far too sweet and won’t have the bite that ginger beer has in this cranberry mocktail.

Why Does a Moscow Mule Have to Be In a Copper Mug?

Why? Because it looks awesome on Instagram. Ha!


Actually, it is all about keeping that drink cool and refreshing for longer. The metal will take on the cold temp of the drink with a lot of crushed ice. Which makes this drink and the copper mug the perfect summer treat to keep you cool. Or all year long.


And again, so you will look awesome on Instagram. Make sure to see our awesome Instagram too!

Do You Shake a Moscow Mule?

No, please don’t! You will regret your life choices if you do! This cranberry mocktail is pretty much the easiest because you just fill the mug and drink!

This is such an easy mocktail, and if you are wanting alcohol, just add 2 ounces vodka or gin, and you are good to go. Easy to make, this one is a winner for all, and perfect for the winter season, or all year long!
