Even though we still have Thanksgiving ahead of us, I’ve already found myself reveling in the Christmas spirit this year. Last year, the holiday season was admittedly stressful for me—I quit my first job and began a new one, so the merriment the season brings fell to the backburner. This year, I feel a lot more settled in my life and am so excited to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
While I love hosting a little get together for my friends during the holidays, with the busyness of the season, one thing I’m always short on is time. That’s where one of my favorite brands, Master of Mixes, comes in, because their products make it so easy to make a great cocktail at home—so you can spend less time behind the bar and more time making memories with family and friends.
One of my go-to cocktails this time of year—or any time of year, really, if we’re being honest—is a Moscow Mule. But to put a holiday twist on my go-to classic, I love making Pomegranate Moscow Mules. Of course, one of the most important ingredients in a Moscow Mule is lime juice and Master of Mixes makes a delicious Single Pressed Lime Juice as part of their cocktails essentials line, which allows amateur bartenders like me to mix up quality cocktails from scratch. Master of Mixes’ lime juice is 100% single pressed juice from Mexico, a process which eliminates the heat-intensive process of concentration that leads to flavor degradation. As a result, this Single Pressed Lime Juice brings so much flavor to any cocktail you mix up with it!
These Pomegranate Moscow Mules are so easy to mix up—and are so good! Plus, when garnished with fresh lime, mint, and pomegranate seeds, they look so festive. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1.5 ounces of vodka
- 4 ounces of ginger beer, chilled
- 1 ounce of pomegranate juice
- ½ ounce Master of Mixes Single Pressed Lime Juice
- Fresh mint, pomegranate seeds, and lime for garnish
First, fill your copper Moscow Mule mugs with ice. Add the vodka, ginger beer, pomegranate juice, and Master of Mixes Single Pressed Lime Juice. Stir to combine, and then garnish with fresh mint, pomegranate seeds, and lime. Cheers!
