Ingredients

Cranberry Syrup

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries

Cranberry Lime Mojito

  • 16 sprigs mint
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 8 ounces light rum
  • 24 ounces sparkling water

Instructions

Cranberry Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, mix together the sugar, water, and fresh cranberries. Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes. The sauce will get very thick, and the cranberries may 'pop' (or open up). Cover with a mesh strainer to prevent cranberries staining your shirt!

Assembly

  1. Muddle the mint and lime juice together and separate evenly into 4 glasses.

  2. Separate the cranberry syrup into each glass.

  3. Pour about 2 ounces of rum into each glass.

  4. Top with crushed ice and sparkling water.
