Weekend Cocktails: Cranberry Mojitos

With the holidays officially upon us, we thought we'd share a cocktail that takes advantage of the season. Your guests may never eat your cranberry sauce. But it will be hard for them to turndown your Cranberry Mojitos. We found this yummy recipe at Epicurious.com:

1 bunch fresh mint, trimmed (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups light rum
1 1/4 cups fresh lime juice
3/4 cup frozen cranberry juice cocktail concentrate, thawed
2 10-ounce bottles sparkling water, chilled

Using a wooden spoon, mash mint with sugar in bottom of large pitcher. Add rum and lime juice; stir to dissolve sugar.

Mix in thawed cranberry juice concentrate and water. Mix in 6 cups ice.
Serves 6.
