Blood Orange Moscow Mule + A Giveaway!

Blood Orange Moscow Mule is a fruity fall twist on the classic cocktail. Now that blood oranges are briefly gracing us with their presence, get in on the goodness in every way possible!

Blood oranges are a bit fleeting here in Colorado. They come in and like a tornado, they are gone seemingly moments after they get here. I’m pretty sure it’s all those foodies lurking around, just waiting for them to hit the product section so they can hoard them all to themselves.

Let me tell you, finding them was a massive pain – a much larger pain than I thought it was going to be when I initially thought about doing this recipe.

I almost resorted to blood orange vodka (which 100% works as a substitute if you don’t have blood oranges in your area, by the way – trust me, I tried it), but I really wanted the freshest flavor possible in these Moscow mules.

You all know that I have an affinity for Moscow mules on Cake ‘n Knife. I love making seasonal variations any chance I get (hiiiiiiii obsession with ginger beer…).

This time I’m bringing something a little extra to the party… New stunning Moscow mule mugs!

I mean just look at these… aren’t they gorgeous?! I’m so used to seeing the plain ol’ hammered or smooth copper mugs – I never realized there were such pretty ones out there! These Kajamo Mule mugs are 100% copper just like the mugs you know and love, but they have an eye-catching design AND they are 16 oz.

Yea, you read that right. Now you can make 16 OUNCES worth of Moscow mule deliciousness without having to go back for multiple refills.

I’m lucky enough to be giving away a pair of these mugs (copper stirring sticks included!) today! The giveaway is below the recipe, so be sure to enter ASAP. You NEED these mugs to make it through the rest of blood orange season!

    Since I’ve never made one, I think I’d start with your recipe!

  5. Mary — October 13, 2016 at 10:07 am (#)

    I would start with making an original recipe since it’s hard finding blood orange…my mom had one for her birthday and loved it so I would like to re-create it in these beautiful mugs!

    I’m not sure what kind of mule I’d make first. All I know is that suddenly the La Croix orange water I was drinking when I opened this e-mail/post wasn’t nearly as refreshing as it had been! And those mugs are absolutely gorgeous…

      Hahahaha! Aren’t the mugs gorgeous?! I’m still swooning over them…

    Never made one, so will go with something with oranges in it.

  17. Dee — October 14, 2016 at 12:37 am (#)

    I’ve never actually tried one so the Blood Orange Moscow Mule sounds like a great way to enjoy it! 🙂

  18. Charmain Yobbi — October 14, 2016 at 5:14 am (#)

    What gorgeous mugs! Not sure what type of mule I’d make first, but these mugs and stirrers will always make it look good!

    I would have to try your Blood Orange Moscow Mule recipe first. Sounds good!

    I love a traditional moskow mule. These Kamojomule mugs are too cute! Thanks for this!

  21. Carly Williams — October 15, 2016 at 9:40 am (#)

    I would make the traditional mule since that is what I am the most familiar with, but I would love to try some of these other varities!

  22. DJ — October 15, 2016 at 4:07 pm (#)

    I would make an Irish Mule.

  23. Theresa j — October 15, 2016 at 5:48 pm (#)

  24. Tyneisha — October 15, 2016 at 10:25 pm (#)

    This is my first time with any of this mule making lol so I would take a page from your book and try this recipe! These mugs are gorgeous!

  25. Matt — October 17, 2016 at 4:14 pm (#)

    Moscow mule with a hint of high-proof limoncello

  26. Steph — October 17, 2016 at 6:19 pm (#)

    Traditional Moscow mule of course!!

  27. Lisa L — October 17, 2016 at 6:25 pm (#)

    The first one I’d make is a classic moscow mule with just vodka, ginger beer, and lime. Then I’d start getting creative after that.
