Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

8 oz
fresh cranberries
1 c
sugar
1 c
water
20
mint leaves
2 Tbsp
lime juice
ice
4 oz
rum
4 to 6 oz
soda water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Just put cranberries, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
2
Then lower the heat a bit to medium-low and continue to cook for about 10 minutes, before your berries start bursting. Remove from heat.
3
Once the berry mixture has cooled, you can strain them. I ended up letting my mixture cool overnight in the fridge. I wanted to make sure the berries had seeped as much as possible and left lots of flavor behind. But I don’t think it was totally necessary. You can strain the berries right away if you prefer.
4
Now you’re ready to get your drink mixing on! Put about 10 leaves of mint and a T of lime juice in each glass. With the back of a wooden spoon or a muddler mash the mint up.
5
Now put ice in each glass and pour 2 oz. of the cranberry syrup and 2 oz. rum into each glass.
6
Top off each glass with soda water. And sprinkle some fresh cranberries in for garnish.
