Almost too pretty to drink, this Blackberry Cranberry Moscow Mule is a fun and fruity twist on the classic favorite.
Cocktails are officially my favorite thing to photograph and style. As a food blogger and photographer, this is actually quite hilarious. Here’s why-
- I have no experience in the cocktail making department. In fact, the only thing I knew about alcohol (until this year) was that there was beer, wine, tequila shots, and gin and tonics. You guys, there is a big big world of booze out there.
- Until this year I did not own proper wine glasses. I would drink any and all alcohol out of a mason jar.
- Photographing glasses can actually be a total pain in the ass and was initially one of my LEAST favorite things to shoot.
That’s all changed. Obviously, as I photograph booze as frequently as possible. Yesterday I came up with two new cocktails and almost went for a third, but for the sake of my liver, I decided to hold off.
Anyway, at the risk of boring you too much, I’ll stop with all my photography and cocktail chatter. Except first, let chat about this gorgeous cocktail.
Have you ever had a classic Moscow Mule? Just in case you have not, they’re delicious and so super simple to shake up. Traditionally made with vodka, ginger beer, and fresh lime, you’ll usually find them served in a copper mug. I love a traditional Moscow Mule. I also love fruit. So, I decided to merge the two into one brilliant and beautiful cocktail.
The result? This must-have Blackberry Cranberry Moscow Mule!
