Cocktail: The Holiday Road


» 3 oz. Triple Eight Cranberry Vodka
» 2 oz. Apple cider
» Juice from ½ of a lime
» Dash of nutmeg
» Dash of cinnamon
» Handful of fresh cranberries
» 2 oz. Gosling’s Ginger Beer
» 1 cinnamon stick

The Holiday Road.

Method: Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a mule copper mug filled with ice. Top with fresh cranberries and ginger beer. Stir with a cinnamon stick and enjoy.

The showcased seasonally spiced mule is one of DeMars original, musically inspired creations. The Holiday Road cocktail takes its name from the iconic theme song featured in the 1983 film “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” written by music icon Lindsey Buckingham. “The addition of the spices really pairs well with cigars of the same flavor profile,” DeMars said. “It’s a new addition to the menu and has been a hit so far.”
