You didn’t think I’d leave you stranded on one of the biggest food/beverage holidays of the year with nothing but Rum and Pepsi did you? This Thanksgiving, my cocktail hour will include a White Cranberry Mojito!
White Cranberry Mojito
2 3/4 cups white cranberry juice
2 Tbsp sugar
Handful of fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cup white rum
3 cups chilled club soda
Mint sprigs and/or fresh cranberries for garnish
1. Combine cranberry juice, sugar, and mint in a small saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Strain mixture through a sieve into a storage container, discarding the solids. Stir in lime juice, cover, and refrigerate. (Feel free to do this step the night before)
2. Combine juice mixture, club soda, and rum in a large pitcher. Stir to combine. Serve in tumblers or highballs over crushed ice. Garnish with mint sprigs and/or fresh cranberries.
