It’s officially fall, and while everyone is spending all of their money on pumpkin spice lattes, I’m over here just trying to figure out which cocktail I’m going to make later.
You know what makes cocktails taste even better? Drinking them out of a moscow mule mug.
Yeah, I understand that they’re usually used for just moscow mules (that drink with the vodka and ginger beer), but I don’t live by the rules and neither should you.
100% Pure Copper
For these cocktails, I used moscow mule mugs from Moscow Muled, which are copper mule mugs made from 100% pure high-grade food-safe copper. Ideal for so many different beverages, including beer, iced coffee, iced tea, juice, and obviously any kind of cocktail!
You may have heard about the dangers of using pure copper mule mugs to drink out of because the copper reacts to citrus negatively, but with these mugs, the interior is lined with high-grade nickel. BOOM – safe to drink out of and keeps things cold longer!
Okay aside from them being safe for drinking and cold AF, these puppies are handcrafted using traditional methods and are hammered by hand to create the look. The handles are welded rather than riveted which ensures that the mug is water-tight and leak free – guaranteed.
Pretty great, right?
So now let’s focus on the drink recipe. For my Black Cherry Cheer cocktail (because it brings cheer, duh) I used frozen cherries, a little sugar, Tito’s Vodka, rosemary sprigs for good tidings and black cherry seltzer. All of these ingredients combined made for one hell of a tasty beverage perfect for warm fall days (like today) or colder nights inside by the fire… Because honestly, who wants to be drinking something hot near something hot?
Here’s the recipe:
- Frozen Cherries – About a Handful
- Sugar – 1 tsp
- Tito’s – 1.5oz
- Needles from 1 Sprig Rosemary + 1 Sprig of Rosemary for Garnish
- Black Cherry Seltzer
Directions: Combine cherries, sugar, Tito’s, & rosemary sprig in a drink mixer and shake, shake, shake. Once your arm gets tired, empty into a glass with ice, and top with black cherry seltzer.
BOOM. Hello Thanksgiving cocktail. I mean seriously… if I make a big batch of this for Thanksgiving and wander around with my frosty Moscow Muled mug, everyone’s gonna be asking for one.

FYI – it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts, and this here is a good one.
