Cocktail Bazaar: Cranberry and Peppermint Mule

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 18, 2019

As some of you might know, my 2018 Seasonal Cocktail Bazaar was interrupted when I lost my internet connection last December when I moved into my new house. It took a quite a while to get everything straightened out, but I finally have begun to post more regularly again. It is probably a good time to publish the final posting for that Cocktail Bazaar.

This recipe was sent to my by the Smirnoff Vodka Media team who also sent me samples of the key ingredients such that I could mix and sample the serving at home, which I did over the Christmas Holiday season. The serving was well received by my family, and I suspect that when I have time to share it with my friends and my tasting group that they too will be enamored with the combination of peppermint, cranberry and lime lengthened into a hi-ball with the addition of ginger-ale.

Please don’t wait until next Christmas to try it, I think it will taste grand any time of the year.

Cranberry and Peppermint Mule


3/4 oz Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
3/4 oz Smirnoff Peppermint Twist
1 1/2 oz Ocean Spray Cranberry Cocktail
1/4 oz Lime Juice
4 oz. Ginger Ale
Sugar coated Cranberries

Add Smirnoff Peppermint Twist and Cranberry Cocktail into a metal cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the metal shaker begins to frost
Fill a Copper Mug with Ice
Strain the Smirnoff Peppermint Twist and Cranberry Juice over the ice
Top with Ginger Ale
Garnish with sugar coated Cranberries and Mint.

Enjoy Responsibly!

Note: Smirnoff Peppermint Twist is a limited seasonal offering from Smirnoff Co. bottled at 30% alcohol by volume. It features a ‘scratch and sniff’ bottle allowing you to enjoy the seasonal scent of peppermint and candy cane before you even open the bottle. You may read my full review of this flavoured vodka here:

Review: Smirnoff Peppermint Twist

” … The peppermint flavoured vodka is perhaps a touch on the sweet side, then again it is the flavours of peppermint and candy cane which are featured and the spirit would not be a true holiday spirit if it did not accurately reflect this sweetness …”

I hope you enjoy the review, Chimo!
