Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 40 mint leaves
  • 2 limes
  • 16 tbsp white rum
  • ice
  • soda water
  • mint leaves and cranberries to serve
  • Cranberry syrup:
  • 500g cranberries
  • 300g sugar
  • 250ml water
Method
  1. Put the cranberries, sugar and water into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and allow to bubble for 10 mins until the sugar has dissolved and the berries burst.
  2. Leave to cool, allowing the cranberries to steep for a few hours or overnight.
  3. Strain the mixture into a jug, pushing it through the sieve with the back of a spoon, to make a syrup.
  4. To make the mojitos, put 10 mint leaves in each of four glasses and add the juice of half a lime each, then mix and crush with the handle of a wooden spoon.
  5. Add 4 tbsp white rum per glass, 4 tbsp of the syrup, and the ice and stir well or shake together in a cocktail mixer.
  6. Top up with soda water and add a sprig of mint and a few cranberries to serve.
  7. Use white rum for a classic Mojito flavour or spiced rum for a richer Christmassy taste.
