Cranberry Mojitos are a fun twist on a classic mojito to make the fun and festive for the holidays!  

 

When the holidays roll around everyone is searching for fun drink recipes. People are entertaining and want more than just beer and wine to serve at their party.  And you can’t really blame them. One fun signature cocktail is always a great idea for a party.

I love to serve a red wine spritzer, because not only does it make a bottle of wine go further, but people love them. And if you have people who are white wine fans, you could go with a White Wine Spritzer as well. 

This starts out with your classic mojito recipe and you just add cranberry juice and garnish with cranberries to serve.  It could not be easier. My friends wanted to call it a Mistletoe Mojito, but I went for Cranberry  Mojito  Which is a better name for it?

Cranberry Mojito - a classic mojito recipe with cranberry juice and cranberries!

Let’s start with the basics!

What is in a Mojito?

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  1. Mint. Lots of fresh mint gets put in that you muddle with the lime juice to infuse the flavor into the entire drink.
  2. Limes. To make mojitos you want to stock up on fresh limes and invest in a good juicer. You can use a fork or pair of tongs as well, but after you try them you will probably be making them a lot! So a juicer comes in handy.
  3. Rum. A good quality white rum goes into a mojito. Normally they are very light in color, so this is not the time to use your Captain Morgan.
  4. Club Soda. As with any good cocktail, you need some fizz on top!
  5. Simple Syrup. A mojito does have a little sweetness added. You can add a little or a lot, that is the nice thing about making your own.
  6. Cranberry Juice. This is what makes this one fit for the holidays! A color and flavor twist!

How To Make A Cranberry Mojito

  • Add the lime juice and the mint leaves to a small pitcher or a glass if you are just making a single one.  Use a muddler (or back of a wooden spoon) to crush the mint leaves. This helps release the flavor the mint and not leave you drink with the grassy taste.
  • Mix in simple syrup, cranberry juice and rum.
  • Add ice to fill up the pitcher and then gently mix to combine everything.
  • Pour into glasses filled with ice. Top with club soda. Garnish with cranberries to serve.

So what takes classic mojitos recipe and turns it into a fun and festive cranberry mojito?  Cranberry juice of course. I apparently have an obsession with cranberry this time of year.  Cranberry Vodka Cocktail is on permanent rotation this time of year.
