These festive low-carb Moscow mules have become a staple in my home over the holidays. With the perfect mix of ginger & mint, these are a delicious treat for any holiday gathering or just for hanging out around the home!
I find making the ginger syrup from scratch vs. using ginger beer is so worth it! The smooth flavors of the syrup combined with a little fizz makes the perfect holiday blend! Enjoy the yule fuel!
