Christmas Mojito

Cranberry Mojito Cocktail2

I realized that the majority of my cocktails lately have been cider/apple based and I decided it was time to give it a mix-up. How do you take a summer fun drink and turn it into something holiday appropriate?  Introduce the cranberry.

I am usually a little weary of cranberries… the tartness is usually a bit much for me, but when used to flavor a simple syrup (ie sweet), it was the perfect addition.  Plus cranberries and mint pose a striking resemblance to holly!

Cranberry Christmas Mojito

  • 2 oz Cranberry Simple Syrup (add a single layer of cranberries to simmer in the pot you are using)
  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 3 oz Club Soda
  • Handful of Mint Leaves
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  1. Muddle lime juice and mint leaves in a glass.
  2. Add simple syrup and rum. Stir.
  3. Fill with ice and top with club soda
  4. Garnish with additional cranberries and mint.
