Cranberry Rosemary Mule

If I could put the flavor of the holiday season into a cocktail, this would be it. The cranberry, rosemary simple syrup together with the ginger beer and lime give this a sweet, refreshing flavor that is perfect for the season. I like to freeze some cranberries to throw in along with a sprig of fresh rosemary for a fun touch. It is like holding a cup of holiday cheer. If you are looking for the perfect cocktail to serve over the holidays, look no further! Cheers!
