We all know the holidays call for slowing down and enjoying time with our family and friends, but we also all know…it calls out loudly for some booze and cocktails! And well, it’s 2020 so bring it on!

Our good friends at @unknowncraftgingerale asked us to play around and come up with something fall-ish and Manny channeled his inner Queen @amandabmixing and came up with this Fall-Spiced Mule complete with that @vanasouthend aesthetic! 😜. We aren’t the only fans of this great tasting ginger ale. The bar program at @bardorestaurant actually sells a cocktail kit that includes this fizzy goodness! Snag a kit from them or give Manny’s recipe a try. Make sure to save and pin this post for the recipe. It might seem like a lot of steps, but don’t be intimidated! It’s not all too hard–most of the ingredients, including the clay pot can be purchased at @comparefoodsclt (or your local grocery store spice aisle!). Tag us if you give this drink a try. It’s all that fall goodness and more! Cheers and y’all celebrate safely–mask up, wash those hands, and stay 6 feet apart!

Fall Spiced Syrup

3 whole cinnamon sticks
1 whole nutmeg
2 whole star anise
2 tbsp crystalized ginger

Fall Mule

1.5 oz bourbon
1 oz apple cider
0.5 oz lime juice

Combine all ingredients except ginger ale into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, strain and pour into tall glass with ice (we used a clay mug for additional fall flair). Top off with ginger ale. Garnish with lime wheel.
