I’ve become a sucker for a Moscow Mule lately. And in staying true to myself, I always swap the vodka for tequila. Something about the tequila really allows the other flavors to shine through versus vodka taking over. It’s possible I just hate vodka and love tequila.
Anyway, I thought about mixing up my usual Moscow Mule with some fresh flavors for fall like pomegranate. One of my favorite fruits ever. I rarely buy them though, they make SUCH a mess. Now I understand why my mom would never let us have them as kids. Using POM pomegranate juice and also fresh for garnish, this is the best pomegranate moscow mule you’ll have.
Pomegranate Moscow Mule Recipe
Not only is this one delicious cocktail to enjoy, but it’s festive. I find that anything in a copper mug feels more fun in the first place. But adding the tart flavor of pomegranate, and the colorful red makes this a pretty and festive cocktail this time of year.
It really is a great pomegranate holiday mule that your guests will enjoy. If you’re not into a mule, you may want to try this pomegranate margarita instead!
Making this cocktail is also insanely easy. This pomegranate moscow mule for the holidays will be your perfect signature cocktail. All you need is vodka (or tequila), pomegranate juice, lime juice and ginger beer.
If you’re making it in batches for a crowd, you can even create a pomegranate ginger beer (just mix a 2 to 1 ratio) and keep it in a pitcher for guests to create their desired cocktail. Pomegranates are super pretty, so it’s nice to have them in a bowl if you’re creating a cocktail station or sprucing up your bar cart.
- 1.5 ounces of your favorite vodka or tequila
- 2 ounces of pomegranate juice
- 4 ounces of ginger beer
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- Pomegranate seeds for garnish
- Lime wedge for garnish
This recipe is so easy and that’s one of the reasons why I absolutely love making mules. All you do is grab a copper mug, fill it with ice, and then fill it up with the ingredients. No need get a shaker out or anything. You can give it a stir with your straw and you’re good to go.
