Getting Into the Holiday Spirit(s)!

I love mojitos and the smell/taste of them can instantly transport me to Carribean vacations and warm summer nights. I'm dying to try this holiday version - the Depaz Winter Mojito. Simply replace the palm trees for a Christmas tree and you've got yourself a drink!
Depaz Winter Mojito


8-10 mint leaves
6-8 cranberries
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz. Depaz Cane Syrup
1 3/4 oz. Depaz Blue Cane Amber Rhum


Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. The cranberries turn the cocktail red as they break open during the shaking. Strain the contents into a tall highball glass that contains ice. Drop in a few whole cranberries. Garnish with a mint sprig and coat the top of the mint sprig with powdered sugar (snow!!!). ENJOY!
