Designer drinks are all the rage these days, and I won’t lie I love to indulge in one every now and again when we are out, but man are they expensive! We were having dinner a few weeks ago at a local brewery and they had several specialty moscow mules including one that inspired this, but at ten bucks a pop I knew I could recreate it at home. Not only is this drink delicious, it is so pretty! I think it would be great for an upcoming holiday party, the flavors and colors are so festive. Or, you can just be like me and whip a couple up on a regular ol’ Sunday night! Either way, you won’t regret it!
