Virgin Cranberry Mojito

With all of the upcoming holidays on the horizon, I wanted to share a mocktail recipe that is perfect for entertaining guests, and everyone can drink it - even the kids!

My love for mocktails started a few years ago when my husband and I went on our honeymoon cruise to the Caribbean. My husband and I don't drink alcohol, but the beverage package that we purchased on the ship included whatever soda and mocktails we wanted. We loved getting to try all of the different drink creations that they can make!  Our favorite drink hands down was a virgin mojito.

Mocktails are so easy to make, but they add a bit of sophistication to your party, and you can customize them fairly easily! I created this virgin cranberry mojito by combining some of the basic components and flavors of a mojito with a little holiday twist!

Here is what you'll need:

  1. Fresh Mint 
  2. 2 Limes 
  3. Cranberry Juice 
  4. Seltzer Water 
  5. Sugar 
I'm going to walk you through how I made these, but for the record, I didn't measure any of the ingredients exactly. 

I started by adding a few fresh mint leaves to the bottom of these adorable monogrammed highball glasses by SpringerMade

I added ice and a spoonful of sugar (add more or less depending on how sweet you like it). You will also squeeze one whole lime into each glass.

Fill the cup about halfway with cranberry juice. This would be a great point to customize this however you'd like! I've made it with grapefruit juice, and we love it that way too!

Top it off with a bit of seltzer water and give it a stir.

Voila! You have a super fancy holiday drink that tastes amazing and is made with just five simple ingredients.

  7. We are obsessed with cranberry juice in our house and this is really taking it up a notch. I love adding sparkling water and lime, but I never thought of making it into a mojito style drink. Going to give this a try tomorrow. I know everyone will love it :)
