Nothing celebrates fall like a refreshing apple cider moscow mule.

This rum mule is the perfect drink for happy hour or any fall gatherings.

The main ingredient is pecan rum which makes for a festive cocktail that is sweet and full of fall flavors.

I’ve discovered a new brand of rum.

In fact, it has quickly become a favorite of mine.

On a recent trip to visit my folks on the Outer Banks in North Carolina, I decided to tour the Outer Banks Distillery, home of Kill Devil brand rum.

There I met two of four locals who have turned their dream into a reality.

Housed in a historic building in downtown Manteo, this local distillery is a “diamond in the rough.”

The distillery operates daily and churns out four different rum varieties including their silver rum, pecan rum, small batch barrel aged Shipwreck series rum, and their Winter Solspice rum.

I picked up a bottle of their Kill Devil Pecan Rum after trying it in their tasting room.

It’s full of big bold and complex flavors of honey and butterscotch and is the quintessential spirit for fall cocktails.

What rum is good with apple cider

Fresh pressed apple cider makes for a delicious cocktail.

Skip the apple juice and pick up a gallon of apple cider at the grocery during the fall.

It is my favorite season of the year.

I love the cooler weather and beautiful colors with all the falling leaves.

Each fall, we enjoy apple picking at our local orchard and they always have fresh cider available for purchase.

My salted caramel apple martini was such a hit, I knew I could come up with a new cozy cocktail using this dark rum. 

Hence, an idea was born and a new fall Moscow mule was invented.

Apple cider pairs wonderfully with this pecan rum and the spicy ginger flavor of the beer makes for a great cocktail.

A traditional Moscow mule is served in copper mugs.

But don’t despair. A mason jar is an easy alternative.

Just fill your Moscow mule mug or glass with ice cubes, the easy ingredients and an apple slice.

Do you know the difference between ginger beer and ginger ale?

I had to research it. I love both sodas.

But I prefer spicy ginger beer.

Similar to root beer, its brewed or fermented where as ginger ale is just carbonated water that’s been flavored with ginger.

That subtle flavor difference makes a big splash in your apple cider cocktail.

What basic ingredients do I need for this apple cider mule recipe

I coated two glasses in cinnamon sugar, added ice, fresh apple cider, ginger beer and the rum, of course. 

Delish! See the easy recipe card below.
