  • Author: Brandie Valenzuela
  • Yield: 2 cocktails (approx 15 ounces each) 1x

Ingredients

Scale

1 lime
8-10 mint leaves
1 cup white rum, divided
1/2 cup sweet and sour, divided
1 cup cranberry juice, divided
Ice

Notes

–We recommend using a glass that holds at least 15 ounces

–Buy an extra bag of fresh cranberries during Thanksgiving time to freeze. Then use the frozen cranberries in this recipe.
