How to Make a Cranberry Sprig Garnish
To make cranberry sprig garnish, carefully thread 3 fresh cranberries onto the bottom of a rosemary stem.
Around the holidays, you can often find a live potted Rosemary tree, which is perfect to have on hand for garnishes and cooking. I pick one up nearly every year.
Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice.
Shake well and pour into ice-filled copper Moscow Mule mugs. Top off mug with ginger beer and stir to combine.
Garnish with rosemary sprigs and lime wedges, if desired. Serve immediately.
