Somehow, it’s that time of year again, when the weather gets cold, the lights go up, and the occasional ugly sweater gets broken out. That’s right, Christmas season is here again, and with it comes a new cocktail: the mistletoe mule. Read on to learn more!

The Christmas season is a time of warmth, connection, and of course, parties, so what could be better than a festive cocktail to liven things up? That’s where our mistletoe mule comes in. It’s a classic-yet-contemporary, highly shareable cocktail that takes some old classics and livens them up a bit.

What is a Mistletoe Mule?

We all know and love the moscow mule, but as the seasons change, we found ourselves wanting to make that classic drink a little more festive—enter the mistletoe mule. In this case, ginger beer still plays a big role, but seasonal pomegranate seeds are added, as is St. Germain elderflower liqueur, for a snowy kick. It’s a dash of cheer for cold nights, and, best of all, it works great in a pitcher for your next Christmas party! Our friends are all convinced, and we think yours will be too.

The Ingredients

To make a pitcher of holiday cheer, you will need: 

  • 2 parts vodka

  • 1 cup elderflower liqueur

  • 3 parts clementine juice (blood orange or orange juice will do in a pinch)

  • 6 parts ginger beer

  • Thyme sprigs or mint leaves, to taste

  • Arils of 1 pomegranate

How to Assemble the Cheer

  • In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine vodka, elderflower liqueur, and citrus juice. 

  • When it’s time to serve, add ice, ginger beer, and pomegranate arils.

  • Garnish with thyme or mint and serve!

We love the mistletoe mule because it can go well with any kind of party. The elderflower liqueur pairs perfectly with a cozy alpine Christmas theme, and it looks great with some fondue, gingerbread, and a roaring fireplace. If you want to go another direction, it’s also right at home with a tropical theme. Its bright colors look great in a pitcher on a fake (or real) beach.
