Simply Beautiful Blue Yule Mules

(This post is sponsored by President’s Choice. I used their PC Black Label Blueberry Syrup as an ingredient in this festive blue yule mule cocktail)Something tells me that you’ve never heard of a Moscow Mule before today.

Now, truth be told, I had never heard of this type of drink until I became completely mesmerized by the mug they are traditionally served in. So what is it exactly? A Moscow mule is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. And best of all, it’s served in a copper mug.

So why copper?  It’s all about the temperature. Chilled drinks in copper cups offer an extra-cool sensation, due to the metal quickly taking on the icy temperature of the cocktail. Beside the fact that these mugs are shaped so beautifully, I couldn’t resist creating a signature drink for President’s Choice to compliment its’ design.

I have to say, I’m a little bit sad writing this post. Why? Well, it’s been a wonderful journey over the past few months with President’s Choice and their amazing PC Black Label products.

Each time a new box arrived, I couldn’t wait to pop it open and see what was inside. This #PlayWithYourFood campaign was dedicated to expressing my very own culinary creations, and boy oh boy, did I ever have a blast!

This folks, is the last box of the year. Needless to say, I was more than excited to open it and see what special surprises were inside. And? They sure packed it with some incredible goodies. I had a really tough time deciding which one to pick for a recipe.

The PC Black Label Soft Dried Figs?

The PC Black Label Grilled and Marinated Artichoke Halves?

or

This absolutely delectable PC Black Label Blueberry Syrup?

Hmmmmmm

How did I make my final decision?

Let’s just say I put the mule before the horse. Or was it the cart?

On one of my many “shopping for decor” trips while outfitting my new kitchen, I stumbled across a set of Moscow Mule mugs.

They have been sitting in my dining room for months.  I wanted to celebrate the final PC Black Label black box with something super festive.

So, here you have it.

The Simply Beautiful Blue Yule Mule.

An easy cocktail or mocktail for guests to enjoy. I have included both versions for you.

From my home to yours, have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.
