These Sip Straws are perfect for cocktails, and stirring coffee.
You can adjust the flavor of your Apple Cider Mule a bit by using flavored vodka...cinnamon for hot and spicy, caramel to add some sweetness. Spiced Rum might even be fun!
I cut a small lime into quarters and used one of the quarters in each drink.
The apple slices are just thinly sliced, from top to bottom with a slit cut in the center. The apple will break when you push it over the side of the mug, but the cinnamon stick hides it. You could also float the apple slice on top of your cocktail.
