Apple-Ginger Moscow Mule Mocktail


Legend has it that the Moscow Mule was created when three entrepreneurs—a vodka businessman, a ginger-beer maker and a copper-mug saleswoman—were down on their luck. The copper mug may seem decorative, but some argue it's the key to keeping your mule colder longer, or that it even adds a bit of flavor. We love this zero-proof version all the same in any ol' glass.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
