Here's the thing when it comes to making this Moscow Mule or any other cocktail for that matter. You do you. If you want it weaker or stronger, add less or more alcohol. Same goes for the ginger beer and cranberry. Play with it until you get the flavor that makes you happy!
Moscow Mules are best made fresh each time, you can however make a pitcher of vodka, cranberry and the lime juice ahead of time. Pop it in the fridge and when you are ready to make the cocktails, fill cups with ice, add your mixture and then top each off with the ginger beer. Garnish with cranberries and Rosemary and enjoy!
I have also enjoyed Moscow Mules made with whiskey, which you can check out here.
