pumpkin spice and everything nice.. these pumpkin spice mules are perfect for the holidays!

We’re loving fall - the changing colors, scarf & boots weather, and of course.. pumpkin flavored everything. I also have quite the love affair with moscow mules, or pretty much any kind of drink that involves ginger beer. So in the spirit of combining a fall flavor with an everyday favorite, we starting testing out pumpkin mules. With a little bit of fine tuning, and quite the taste testing panel (err, my husband and another friend), we believe we mastered the pumpkin spice mule. 

And what better time to enjoy a pumpkin spice mule than around the holidays. We’ll definitely be enjoying this tasty cocktail while decorating the house for Christmas!
