Cranberry Apple Mule in Metal Mule Cup

A Refreshing Summer Cocktail

You’ll want to sip this all summer long

Just in time for summer, Carson’s American Kitchen, the popular restaurant at Sunriver Resort, is sharing a recipe for one of their most popular summer cocktails, the Cranberry-Apple Mule. It’s a fun twist on the classic Moscow Mule, and strikes a thirst-quenching balance of sweet, tart, and spice with the help of ginger beer and an apple cinnamon-infused vodka from Wild Roots, a local distillery based in the nearby town of Sisters. And with just four ingredients, it’s a snap to make!
