Fall Sips: RT Lodge's Mountain Mule

RT Lodge's Fall Cocktail, The Mountain Mule.

As temperatures flirt with crisp, we’re eager to embrace the fall season with the help of a classic fall cocktail. And who better to tap for a fall-infused cocktail than the team at The Morningside Room, RT Lodge’s magical, on-site cocktail lounge. A nod to the property’s rich history – the lodge’s original owner, Susan Wiley Cooper, dubbed the home “Morningside” – The Morningside Room serves up unique takes on classic cocktails and seasonally inspired sips alongside Chef Trevor Stockton’s cuisine. 

In anticipation of the cooler climes, the RT Lodge generously shared the recipe for the crowd favorite fall sip, The Mountain Mule. 

To Make:

  • Add ingredients to a copper mug with ice
  • 2 oz choice vodka – purchase at Bob’s Wine + Liquor 
  • 2 oz of an infused apple cider*
    • *add cinnamon sticks, clove, additional fall spices to apple cider for 24 hours
  • Top with a ginger beer, preferably spicy 
  • Garnish as pleased for a fun, seasonal beverage!

Stop into RT Lodge’s The Morningside Room for a post-arrival fall sip or a casual dinner at the bar Monday through Saturday, 3:00 to 11:00. Seating is available on a first-come to hotel guests and general public. Reservations are not accepted. Don’t forget to tell them Scout sent you!
