I love festive drinks. Whether it be a spring theme, cider drink or cranberry you can catch me drinking it. For this holiday season, I wanted to spice up 2 of my favorite drinks: moscato sangria and Moscow mules. Crack open the bottles and get to serving these fun festive drinks!

My parents make Moscow mules all the time, so I thought it would be fun to mix it with some cranberry to give it that festive feel. Cranberries are the perfect addition to any winter holiday item and are super healthy too.

Recipe Notes

Moscow mules are always using copper mugs. 

These ones from Amazon are great! 

Sangria is a favorite of mine during any season, but especially holiday season. You can totally use a dry white wine and club soda if you’re not a moscato fan, but I personally love moscato. The sparkling apple cider and fresh green apples give it that extra sweetness that I love.
