Here is another variant of the classic Mojito, the Cranberry Mojito. The recipe is completely upset: the sour and pungent flavor of the American cranberry replaces the lime, adding a sharp note to the cocktail, which is less aromatic but more like a punch planter.
It is a variant to try if you are a rum lover, especially if you can find fresh cranberries (available in the fall, though).
But even with a good juice alone, the cocktail deserves at least a couple of glasses.
Indeed I recommend you prepare a sweet & sour with cranberries instead of lime/lemon to try as a variant when you are in the mood to create some new cocktails. But let’s go to the recipe.
Ingredients for Cranberry Mojito
- 4 Cl of Cuban white rum
- 3 Cl of cranberry juice
- 3 leaves of hierba buena or mint
- 2 tablespoons of refined white cane sugar
How to make cranberry Mojito
If they are in season, buy fresh cranberries, blend them and then pass them through a colander. Otherwise, let’s be satisfied with the prepackaged juice.
Put the mint leaves in a tumbler, add the sugar and the cranberry juice and pound gently.
Pour in the rum, fill with ice and top up with soda.
