Hey, Hi! Welcome to the final “Christmas Drink Saturday”!

Pomegranate and Peppermint Moscow Mules (VIDEO) | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

How is that Christmas is now LESS than a week away?? How is it that I’ve already shared three new drink recipes – all perfect for Christmas?!? The first one up was this pretty Christmas Sangria, the second recipe were theseΒ Cranberry Orange Margaritas, and now… Pomegranate and Peppermint Moscow Mules! Yes, I think I may have saved the best for last. Something about these Moscow Mules just screams Christmas to me…possibly the cute red and green colors!! Clearly I did that on purpose…hehe.

OKAY. So I made us another super quick video to go along with these drinks. It’s totally embarrassing, but I just HAD to wear my santa hat. I mean, I couldn’t help myself. I really hope you guys like the video, but more importantly, I hope you love the Moscow Mules. We gave them a test drive at Thanksgiving and we all decided they need to make another appearance at Christmas!

So this really should be your “Christmas Drink”. They are just so quick, easy and SO so good! Meaning you NEED these drinks in your life… ASAP.

Cheers to Christmas being just FIVE days away.

    1. Yes, that works great! Just be sure to add the ginger beer right before serving so it does not go flat. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holidays!! πŸ™‚

  1. I just wanted to stop by and say, this is one of my favorite pictures. It perfectly captures the season. Next up – to make and drink these πŸ™‚

  2. Hi! What a great recipe and beautifull pictures! I cant’t find ginger beer in my country, What do you think it would make a good subtitute?Regular beer? Champagne? A Coronita perhaps? Since I have never tried ginger beer I’m totally lost about finding a similar flavor. Feliz Navidad!

    1. HI! Do you have ginger ale? i think that would work best! Please let me know if you have any other questions. Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

  3. Absolutely gorgeous drink, I am so making this over the holidays! Love the pretty pom seeds too (I can’t get enough of them!).

  4. These are gorgeous! There will definitely be some doubling (and maybe even tripling) going on!!

  5. Over a period of 30 years we owned many restaurants. Although I recognized the drink, I don’t think we ever served a Moscow Mule! Now that I see your presentation….we missed the boat! You have done a beautiful job on the photos; in fact, so much so, I will be serving these at the Christmas Party tomorrow. Just started reading your blog a month or so ago. Your conversational method of writing has a way of making me feel as though I am in your kitchen. Great Christmas recipes and drinks.

  6. What a gorgeous, festive drink for the holidays! And so simple too! I really love those candied mint leaves, just beautiful. πŸ™‚

  7. I don’t drink but wow so these look tempting lol!! I love your photos, always so amazing! Can you pretty please tell me where to find the beautiful mugs you used? I noticed 2 different styles and just love them!

    1. Hey Amanda! you can omit the vodka and swap in sparkling water to make these a mocktail! πŸ™‚

      The flat copper mugs are from Crate and Barrel. Here is the link: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/moscow-mule-mug/s187461

  8. My mouth is gaping open in wonder — not at the recipe per se — it is your photos!! The colors, the balance, I love the copper cups. Absolutely beautiful!! Then I saw what the recipe was about and I was instantly interested!! What a marvelous drink for the holidays. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. Oh wow these colours! I’m invited to a Christmas/Secret-Santa party next week and I think I just found the drink I’m going to bring/make! You’re cups are gorgeous! Where did you get them? But I think the red and green will also look great in see through glasses. THANK YOU for the recipe! Seriously, this looks bloody amazing.
