Cranberry Apple Mule
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Yield :
2 servings


  • 8 ounces fresh cranberries, divided
  • 1 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 ounces vodka
  • 3/4 cup cranberry-apple juice/cocktail
  • Cranberry simple syrup (to taste)
  • 2 ginger beers
  • 1/2 apple, cored and sliced


  1. Prepare simple syrup (this can be done well in advance and is recommended). In a medium saucepan, bring 6 ounces of cranberries, sugar, and water to a simmer over medium. Stir to combine. Reduce heat, cook until cranberries are tender but haven't burst. Approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and cool. Strain liquid and discard cranberries. Transfer to an airtight container and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. When ready to serve, fill two mule cups (or the like) half way each with shaved ice. Into each cup add: half vodka, half cran-apple juice. Add desired amount of cranberry simple syrup to each. Top off with ginger beer.
  4. Garnish with remaining cranberries and apple slices.
