Sparkling Cranberry Mojito

I love flavored mojitos and always thought of them as a refreshing summer cocktail… that is, until I thought outside the box and came up with the Sparkling Cranberry Mojito. Oh yes I did. Don’t be mad at me internet, of course I’ll share it with you.

Fresh mint
2.5 ounces of mojito mix
1.5 ounces of white rum
*2.5 ounces of sparkling cranberry juice
1 fresh orange

*Sparkling cranberry juice is amazing. Trust me on this one.

Muddle the fresh mint into the bottom of a tall glass with the back of a wooden spoon. Add ice. Pour the mojito mix and rum over the ice and add 2.5 ounces of the sparkling cranberry juice. Now for my favorite part – squeeze some fresh orange juice on top. YUM! Garnish with some more mint and by dropping a fresh orange wheel into the glass and enjoy.
