Spiced Cranberry Mules Holiday Cocktail Recipe | A Classic Ambition

Spiced Cranberry Mules for the Holidays

I love to cook and make cocktails, so one of my goals for 2018 is to share more recipes on the blog with you all. Many of you may remember that I became a vegetarian a little over six months ago, and I’ve had so many people ask me what I eat since I don’t eat meat. Being a vegetarian is surprisingly easier than I thought it would be, so I would love to share all of my vegetarian recipes with you all. 

Okay, so let’s talk about today’s recipe! I made this recipe as sort of an accident last month. We were all out of white rum and only had spiced rum available. I also had cranberries in the refrigerator because I was planning on making cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving, so I just sort of threw together what I had. The end product looks so festive and the flavors are absolutely amazing! You could even substitute in rosemary to make it even more festive. Keep scrolling for my recipe for spiced cranberry mules!
