  • 2 1/2 cups fresh cranberries picked over and washed
  • 2 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons granulated sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves washed and dried – plus more for garnishing
  • 1/2 cup lime juice freshly squeezed from 4-5 limes
  • 1 1/2 cup rum such as Flor de Cana


  • Place the cranberries, water, and 1/2 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Stirring regularly, bring it to a boil, and then, let it simmer for 10 minutes or until the granulated sugar completely dissolves. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  • In the mean time, place fresh mint leaves and 3 tablespoons in a measuring cup. Mash it with a muddler until mint leaves are completely bruised and sugar is dissolved.
  • Strain the cranberry syrup into a pitcher. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cranberries for garnishing, for later.
  • Add the lime juice, rum, and mint in to the pitcher. Stir it until they are all mixed.
  • Strain the mixture through a medium mash strainer pressing gently to make sure you get all the juices out of the mint leaves.
  • Pour it over tall glasses filled with ice cubes, and garnish each glass with fresh mint leaves and reserved cranberries.
