Tips:

  • We used cranberry cocktail juice. If you prefer unsweetened cranberry juice, you may want to add a little simple syrup to the recipe.
  • The perfect way to serve these is by making a pitcher of cocktails. Start by muddling a handful of fresh mint leaves, 3 tbsp. brown sugar, and the juice of two limes in the bottom of the glass pitcher. Add 3 cups of ice, 1 cup cranberry juice, 1 cup light rum, and 1 cup of club soda. Stir to combine. This makes 4 drinks, pour into individual cups, and garnish with fresh fruit- cranberries and limes.
