Tis the Season For Cocktails

The holiday season can go either way. It can be a festive, jolly ole time … or …  it can be a real shit-show. Either way, you are going to need to arm yourself with some holiday spirits to get you through the end of the year. 
While other cocktails take plenty of prep, steps and time, the Cranberry Mule is a quick and tasty beverage that can loosen up even the grumpiest of Scrooges. 
A lot of fall & winter cocktails are served hot and/or filled with cinnamon or nutmeg. This is a more refreshing option. For your tasting pleasure, I give you:
