Red Mojitos

This spin on a traditional mojito is perfect for summer weather. I love this light and refreshing mint-flavored drink. The cranberry juice adds some sweet and tart flavor notes that makes for a very thirst quinching drink!

Red Mojitos
·1 TBS sugar
·Handful of fresh spearmint leaves
·1 or 2 squeezes of bottled lime juice
·2 oz. light rum
·3 oz. cranberry juice
·2 oz. tonic

Muddle sugar, mint, and lime juice in a highball glass. Fill with ice and add rum, cranberry juice, and tonic. Stir and enjoy!

This recipe is slightly modified from the August 2011 issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray

We are Mojito drinkers. That is an interesting twist on the regular mojito. I love the red color. Will defintely give it a try.
