A Classic Moscow Mule With A Holiday Twist

A signature drink always ups the ante for any part. When I'm entertaining, I always make sure to at least have one--even if it's just a casual get-together.

Scott loves a Moscow mule. The classic lime and ginger beer drink could literally satisfy him any time of the year. But since the holidays are upon us, I found a twist on the recipe that goes perfectly with the cozy feel of the season.

Even if you aren't a drinker (or a pregnant momma like me!) you'll still be obsessed. Just skip the alcohol and add a bit more juice or ginger beer to substitute.

Get the recipe below:
