It’s the time of year where I like to spend a little time in the kitchen creating fun holiday cocktails. With all the entertaining, holiday parties and holiday gatherings that are coming up, I think new cocktail recipes are needed. You can be the hostess with the mostess because everyone is going to love this spin on the traditional moscow mule.

I had the maple syrup and butterscotch schnapps out because I was making my Creamy Butterscotch Martini, so I decided why not mix those two up in another cocktail?! I added in some rum for a bit of a punch and Fireball for a bit of heat. Add in the ginger beer and you got yourself a simply sweet moscow mule with a touch of heat from the ginger beer and Fireball. Sweet Heat if you will. I don’t mean spicy heat, just a little POW.

I do recommend using real maple syrup, there is really no substituting the flavor of real maple syrup.

If you are planning on making this Toasted Butterscotch Maple Mule cocktail recipe for a crowd, I would recommend mixing the maple syrup, butterscotch schnapps, rum and Fireball together ahead of time. The recipe below is for 2 cocktails, so just double or triple the recipe as needed for your gathering. Once you have all the ingredients mixed (besides the ginger beer) place it in the refrigerator until you are ready to make your mules.

Be sure to stir your pre-made maple syrup and alcohol mixture before serving, you don’t want all the alcohol to go to one person and the others all get the maple syrup 😉

Once you are ready to serve your cocktails, add ice to your favorite glasses or copper mule mugs, pour in the alcohol mixture and then top with the ginger beer. I don’t recommend adding the ginger beer to the alcohol mixture and letting it set as ginger beer is carbonated and it will lose it’s bubbles. No one likes a flat mule.
