1pt Orchard Mule

1pt Orchard Mule

Ingredient Cocktail (1) Batch (6+)
1pt Ginger-infused Vodka 2 oz 375ml*
Fresh Lemon Juice 1 oz 6 oz
Simple Syrup ¾ oz 5 oz
Sparkling Apple Juice/Cider Top 13 oz

* 375ml is half of a standard 750ml bottle of spirits

Infuse 375ml of vodka with one packet of 1pt ginger Blend for 2-3 hours, strain and reserve liquid for cocktail. Infused spirits do not need to be refrigerated and can be used as normal. Combine infused vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a shaker with ice (if batching, stir in a pitcher instead of using a shaker). Shake until chilled and frothy. Strain over ice into a cocktail glass (or a copper mule mug if you have one handy), top with a generous amount of sparkling apple cider and garnish with a sprig of sage.

About this Orchard Mule vodka cocktail: when the cold weather sets in, things can feel a bit heavier. The food is richer, the sky is darker, and every once in a while it’s nice to lighten things up. The Orchard Mule is a welcome breath of fresh air with its combination of clarifying ginger, fresh lemon, and crisp apple. Nice and cool!
