Hold on to your hats because the Moscow Mule has arrived and is ready to become your new favorite cocktail. On this week’s episode of Boozy Brunch, we paired a vodka and ginger infused Moscow Mule with one GIANT apple cinnamon pancake.

Pan seared apples + cinnamon _ a pancake = brunch heaven. Wash it all down with an ice cold (especially if it’s in a copper glass) Moscow Mule and try to tell me you aren’t experiencing some sort of brunch utopia. Go out there and enjoy this easy to make yet tastefully complex brunch pairing.
