  • Cocktail Shaker


  • 2 OZ Vodka
  • 1 TBSP Cherry Jam
  • 1 Lime Juiced
  • 6 OZ Ginger Beer


  • Add lime juice, cherry jam and vodka into a mason jar or cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes.
  • Shake for 15-seconds (or stir if no lid).
  • Pour into a copper mug filled with ice.
  • Top with ginger beer.


Make this cherry Moscow mule a mocktail by removing the vodka. Instead use all other ingredients as is.
If you don’t have cherry jam, you can muddle some tart cherries (pit removed) before adding vodka.
