My sister and I have been on a bit of a Moscow Mule kick lately. It’s a classic drink that can pretty much be enjoyed year round. For this holiday season, I decided to try something a little bit different. During the colder months I drink a lot of spiced orange hot tea, so I figured why not try a Spiced Orange Moscow Mule recipe.

For the Moscow Mule ingredients and other holiday party supplies, I went to Sam’s Club. The Simply Orange® 2 pack is perfect for holiday gatherings. I use orange juice in quite a few of my mixed drinks. Simply Beverages® are deliciously simple. You can find the great-tasting 100% juices and juice drinks in the refrigerated section of your Sam’s Club.

You simply must have some nuts when setting up a bar. I was glad to see so many varieties of Member’s Mark Nuts available at Sam’s Club. I picked up some Deluxe Mixed Nuts and Cashews with Sea Salt. YUM. The salty crunch of the nuts pairs perfectly with the sweet and tangy Spiced Orange Moscow Mules.

To get the spices into the drink, I placed some whole cloves and cinnamon sticks into a simple syrup as it cooled. Typically, I don’t use a simple syrup in a Moscow Mule but this exception paid off. You don’t need much of the simple syrup and it makes the drink quite delicious.
