Ingredients
  • 8 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 40 mint leaves
  • 4 Tbsp lime juice
  • Ice
  • 8 oz. rum
  • Soda water
Instructions
  1. Put cranberries, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for about 10 minutes, until just before your berries start bursting.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and let cool. Then place berries in a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl and press with the back of a wooden spoon to extract as much liquid as possible.

  4. Put about 10 mint leaves and a Tbsp of lime juice in each glass. With the back of a wooden spoon or a muddler mash the mint up.
  5. 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. Sprinkle some fresh cranberries in for garnish.
