#DOTW: Cranberry Mojito

Over the next couple of weeks I will be posting cocktails that are suitable for Thanksgiving dinner! This one works very well for your festivities, and if you like it, it might just work for Christmas as well. The recipe calls for muddling of the fruit and mint, but since I’m always tempted to save everyone some time, do like I do, and chop it up, with the lime juice, in a food processor, if you are having to serve larger quantities. Unless you have the time to muddle, then of course please do!



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Brugal (or premium white rum of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • club soda

Muddle cranberries, mint and lime juice. Pour over ice with the rum, top off with club soda. Garnish with lime slices and mint leaves.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
