Cranberry Pomegranate Mules are a festive spin on your classic Moscow Mule. Begin with the basics: vodka + ginger beer. Then tart pomegranate juice and slightly sweet cranberry juice give these mules a deep red hue—and a splash of flavor. Add a squeeze of lime, top with a festive garnish, and enjoy.

You can make cranberry pomegranate mules for a small, intimate gathering or a large party. They’re a great way to liven up a traditional cocktail at Thanksgiving or Christmas, and they’re super simple to make. If you want to get fancy, you can make sugared cranberries and sugared rosemary to add an elegant flourish.


  • Juice of 1/2 lime, freshly squeezed
  • 1 shot vodka
  • 2 shots pomegranate juice
  • 1 shot cranberry juice
  • Ginger beer for topping off the glass

Garnish ideas:

  • Sugared cranberries
  • Pomegranate aerials
  • Sugared rosemary
  • Lime wedges


  1. Add 1/2 cup of crushed ice to a 16 oz copper mule mug. Pour in the lime juice, vodka, pomegranate juice and cranberry juice.
  2. Top the glass full with the ginger beer. Gently stir to combine. Garnish with desired toppings and enjoy!
