Moscow Mule Recipe Variations
The cocktail I have for you today is just like the original which was concocted back in 1941 by John G. Martin and Jack Morgan except for one change, the cranberry juice.
This brings it fully into the holiday season. To be a true Moscow Mule all you need is vodka, ginger beer and lime juice with lots of ice.
I added the cranberries juice and frozen cranberries, which takes this cocktail to another level of fabulous.
The mule was not born in Russia but in Los Angeles at the Cock and Bull, where Jack Morgan was the proprietor . A very popular restaurant on Sunset Boulevard among the celebrities.
