Let’s start our holiday festive treats with a welcome drink for everyone.
The thing I love the most about this drink is its essence of the perfect Christmas color combination, so that’s why I call it the Red Christmas Mojito Recipe.
Isn’t it freaking gorgeous? Just look at it!!
Serve this Red Christmas Drink with some Mouthwatering Starters: Indian Chicken Balls
Red Christmas Mojito Drink is tangy and sweet taste with mint aroma makes it my first choice. Cranberries and fresh mint are very easy to find this time of year and really create a lovely after-dinner holiday drink for the guests and the family. The cranberry syrup can also be made up to several days ahead and kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. One trick that works great in this recipe is using frozen cranberries instead of the ice. It keeps your drink cold, adds color and doesn’t get watered down!

- 8 Ounces (225 gms) Fresh Cranberries

Preparation method for Making Red Christmas Mojito Recipe
- Put the cranberries, sugar and water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a simmer.
- Lower the heat to low and continue to cook for about 10 minutes, remove from heat before the berries start bursting. Should you have some of the cranberries burst, don’t fret over it.
- Cool completely. Once the berry mixture has cooled, strain and discard the berries.

- Top off each glass with soda water and float a few fresh cranberries a garnish.
Note: For the non-alcohol lovers, you can anytime convert this drink to a Mocktail by just using lemon lime soda instead of rum and you can still enjoy the drink while being sober.
