  • 3 oz Caramel Vodka, vegan Van Gogh
  • 2 cans Ginger Beer
  • ¾ cup Apple Cider
  • 1 ½ tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • Ice


  • Place the apple cider, caramel vodka and lime juice into a shaker or large bowl and stir well.
  • Fill two moscow mule mugs or your glass choice with ice and pour in the cider mixture until the mug is half full.
  • Pour the ginger beer into the glass, until it almost reaches the top of the glass.
  • Mix to combine the ginger beer and apple cider mixture.
  • Garnish with a variety of things, such as: cinnamon sticks, lime wedges, apple slices, drizzled caramel.
  • Serve immediately.


Important Notes:
  • The cocktail is best served right away due to the ginger beer, which is carbonated. If you need to prep it ahead of time, I suggest mixing the apple cider, lime juice and vodka then waiting to add the ginger beer and ice until you are ready to drink it.
  • Van Gogh vodka is one of the only vegan caramel vodkas. Be sure to research your caramel vodka before buying. You can always use regular vodka, and add caramel vegan syrup.
  • If you cannot find or use apple cider, apple juice my be used it its place. You may, however, want to add fall spices, such as cinnamon, cloves and allspice to make it feel more festive.
  • Adjust the ABV level by omitting or reducing the amount of vodka.
