Is there a more versatile cocktail than the Moscow Mule? It’s simple yet sophisticated. It refreshes in the summer and has enough festive spice to make sense during these fall and winter holidays. And you can add just about any flavor you can dream up to the classic lime-vodka-ginger mix—it’s a cocktail canvas ready and waiting for your creativity.

Tom’s Urban, the upbeat restaurant planted right on the Strip at the New York-New York casino, has a similarly flexible bar program serving every type of libation imaginable. And Tom’s seasonal mule mixes plenty of Christmas cheer into the recipe, pepping up the traditional recipe with a particularly sharp ginger brew, tart cranberry juice and muddled fresh blackberries and mint. Fruity, fierce and fun, the Twig & Berries mule is too good to have just one ... but too great to last forever. Head down to Tom’s for hit of the holidays while you have time. Tom’s Urban at New York-New York, 702-740-6766; Monday-Thursday 7 a.m.-2 a.m., Friday & Saturday 7 a.m.-3 a.m., Sunday 7 a.m.-1 a.m.
