Peppermint Cranberry Moscow Mule

I was sent a bottle of Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Vodka to sample.  I was not paid for my opinion.  All views and opinions are my own.

'Tis the season for peppermint flavored sweets and cocktails!

I was sent this bottle of peppermint vodka to try along with a couple recipes.

The first thing I noticed was a slight aroma of peppermint.

Was I going crazy?  Was the candy cane looking bottle making me think I was smelling peppermint?

Nope, it's actually a Scratch & Sniff bottle!  Well that's fun!

The cocktail I decided to try from the list I was given is a Peppermint Cranberry Moscow Mule.  


Cause I was suuuuper curious how peppermint, cranberry and ginger would go together.

I braved it and added the vodka.

Then the cranberry juice.

Shook it up.

Strained it into my cup and added the ginger beer.

The end result?

Surprisingly good! 

I tasted each of the ingredients, but none of them overpowered the other.

The peppermint flavor (which I was most worried about) was nice, not over done.  It gave a nice hint of peppermint.

I am looking forward to creating some more holiday cocktails with this flavored vodka!
