Hard Apple Cider Moscow Mule — A fall twist on a Moscow Mule made with hard apple cider and ginger beer! Refreshing and they go down easily!
Easy Fall Cocktail Recipe
Apple cider is one of my favorite things about this time of year. And after trying this twist on the Moscow mule, I think you’ll agree that fall never tasted better.
The apple cider mule is refreshing, zippy, and ginger and apples are such a perfect pairing.
Serve your fall Moscow Mules in copper mugs if you have them. Otherwise a big glass will do!
What’s in an Apple Cider Moscow Mule?
To make this apple cider mule, you’ll need:
- Ice cubes
- Hard apple cider
- Ginger beer (non-alcoholic)
- Cinnamon sticks
How to Make an Apple Cider Moscow Mule
One of the reasons I think this is the best fall cocktail is because it’s so easy to make! Simply add ice to a glass (or a copper mug), then top it off with the hard apple cider and ginger beer.
Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
What’s the Best Ginger Beer for a Moscow Mule?
I prefer using Fever Tree ginger beer in my Moscow Mules, as it has a strong but pure ginger flavor. It doesn’t taste fake at all and the flavor is just right.
What Hard Cider Should I Use?
I used Strongbow hard apple cider, but you may use any brand you’d like.
Tips for Making an Apple Cider Mule
I do not recommend making this fall cocktail in advance. The cider will lose its carbonation and the cocktail will taste flat.
I used a non-alcoholic ginger beer in this cocktail recipe, otherwise the drink would have been pure alcohol.
I prefer serving this apple Moscow Mule chilled over ice. It’s so refreshing that way!
- ice cubes, as needed
- 1/4 cup hard apple cider (such as Strongbow)
- 1/2 cup nonalcoholic ginger beer
- 1 or 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 apple, peeled if desired, seeded, and sliced into thin rounds
- Fill cup with ice.
- Add the hard apple cider and nonalcoholic ginger beer.
- Stir and garnish with apple slice(s) and cinnamon stick(s).
