Ingredients for the Simple Syrup:

  • ½ jalapeno sliced
  • 2 sprigs rosemary + more for garnish
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Ingredients for the Moscow Mule:

  • 1.5 ounces citrus vodka
  • 6 ounces ginger beer
  • 2.5 ounces simple syrup


  1. Cook all simple syrup ingredients in a pot on medium heat. Bring to a light boil, covered. Cook about 6-7 minutes, until the cranberries open up.
  2. Smoosh them down a bit with a spoon to release the juices. Lower the heat and cook another 5 minutes.
  3. Strain the liquid out and cool. Reserve the solids for another recipe if you’d like. They’d make a great jam or sauce. It would great with Pork.
  4. Shake vodka and 2.5 ounces of the syrup in a shaker with ice.
  5. Pour into a tall glass and top with the ginger beer.
  6. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and a few cranberries.

Recipe Notes

You can make 4 drinks from the batch of simple syrup.
