On the Rocks: Cranberry Mojito

Kelly  |  December 07

TGIF! The beau and I have been decking out our home with Christmas decor and it’s making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. To keep with the same theme, this cranberry mojito is not only beautiful…it is darn delicious and is sure to fill you with the holiday spirit. Enjoy!


- 1 1/2 shot of Bacardi Rum

- Pinch of raw sugar

- Lime wedge

- Spoonfull of boiled and strained fresh cranberries

- 7-10 fresh mint leaves

- Soda

- Splash of cranberry juice

- Splash of sprite

*Muddle mint, lime wedge (extract oils from rind), boiled cranberries, and sugar in a flat-surfaced glass. Add ice, rum, splashes of sprite and cranberry juice, and fill with soda. Shake well and serve on the rocks with a raw sugar rim.

  6. The stripped gold glass is vintage, the shot glass was a gift.

  7. Hello,

    Trying to put together a recipe for something similar and wanted to ask how you boiled your cranberries. Just in water or with sugar? Thanks!
