What makes a mojito so refreshing?
Basically, every component of this cocktail is crispy and delightful. Simple syrup, muddled mint leaves (basically crushed or rubbed mint leaves to release its essence), rum, and finished with bubbly club soda. Deeeelightful.
This recipe doesn’t just call for ordinary simple syrup, aka sugar water. Instead, you’re going to add cranberries for an added punch!
Why should you use cranberries in this simple syrup?
Because we don’t do anything ordinary, do we? Making cranberry simple syrup is not your average simple syrup! It leaves you – and your guests – saying WOW!
Here’s my easy cranberry simple syrup recipe. Make it, refrigerate it, and have it ready to make these crazy delightful cranberry mint mojitos.
They’re made with Cape Cod Select Premium Frozen Cranberries. For over 70 years, they’ve been harvesting cranberries in Southeastern Massachusetts (the heart of “Cranberry Country”) and select only the ripest, freshest fruit to package. That means when you take the bag out of the freezer, you’re going to be delightfully surprised by how plump they are. I know I was!
What are you waiting for? Whip up a batch of this super-refreshing cranberry mint mojitos tonight! I mean, what’s not to like about that?! Leave out the rum and you have a perfect mocktail filled with mint, club soda, and the sweet touch of the cranberry simple syrup! Everybody wins!
