I’m a huge fan of Moscow Mules, because I love the ginger-lime taste that’s refreshing but also a bit spicy! I’ve been experimenting with adding fall spices to different drinks I enjoy during the Summer or throughout the year. With this Fall Spice Pineapple Moscow Mule, there’s all the best flavors of a traditional Moscow Mule while also adding warming fall spices and pineapple (my year-round fave!).
There’s something about a cocktail that has warm fall spices that just makes me pretend I’m sitting in front of a fireplace curled up in a blanket. Of course.. I live in Los Angeles and that’s not really what my Fall situation looks like! So instead of sipping on hot drinks like a hot cocoa in front of my non-existent fireplace, I make cold traditional drinks with my twist of fall-spices, like this Fall Spice Pineapple Moscow Mule. It’s the perfect balance for my warm-weathered friends!
Making this Fall Spice Pineapple Moscow Mule is simple and ends with a really flavorful spiced cocktail. You make a Spicy Pineapple Cinnamon Juice Concentrate (learn how to make it here) and then mix it with the typical Moscow Mule ingredients: vodka, lime juice and ginger beer. Make sure to add a cinnamon stick in your mug to add more warmth and depth to the drink!

You can try this cocktail changed up a few ways:
