Cranberry Mojitos

As the holidays approach, we started thinking about cranberry rum drinks and how mint and cranberry might make a refreshing and festive combination. There were several recipes floating around for Cranberry Mojitos and as we experimented with them, we came up with one that we really loved. So, gather your cranberries and rum, mix yourself a refreshing holiday concoction and enjoy a taste of the holidays!

Cranberry Mojitos
(makes one)

10 mint leaves
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 c. dried sweetened cranberries
2 tsp. lime juice
2 oz. light rum
1 c. cranberry juice (we used  cranberry juice cocktail)

Muddle mint, brown sugar, dried sweetened cranberries and lime juice. Add light rum and cranberry juice, stir gently. Pour into a tall glass over ice. Garnish with lime or cranberries if you wish.

We liked having the dried cranberries in the drink, but if you’d prefer not to – strain the drink as you pour it over ice.
