Vanilla #PSM (Pumpkin Spiced Mule)

by James Stevenson

As we are now well and truly in the holiday season I have noticed a lot of bars with variations of seasonal Moscow Mules on their menus, and so I wanted to make one I thought would be great for the holidays. Pumpkin spice really can’t be avoided during the holidays, so I am partnering with Smirnoff to embrace it and take it to the next level with a delicious Moscow Mule variation featuring Smirnoff Vanilla and pumpkin spice syrup! It was so easy to put together and I bet your local bartender could even make it. If they can’t, then check out the recipe below for you to make it at your next gathering.

, Vanilla #PSM (Pumpkin Spiced Mule)


  • ¾ ounce Smirnoff No. 21 vodka
  • ¾ ounce Smirnoff Vanilla
  • ¾ ounce pumpkin spice syrup (pumpkin pie spice, sugar & water)
  • Top with ginger beer

  4. Set aside or refrigerate to chill

Smirnoff Vanilla #PSM:

  1. Combine Smirnoff No. 21 vodka, Smirnoff Vanilla and pumpkin spice syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice
