Bonus Thanksgiving Cocktail!

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

 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.
