Cranberry Mojito – Holiday Mocktail

Cranberry Mojito - Holiday Mocktail

Cranberry Mojito is absolutely refreshing and colorful, perfect as a Holiday Mocktail.  Mood and festivity jazz up with this color burst mocktail.

For the first time probably in some time, I had a gadgetless break, leaving behind my phone and emails for 5 full days!!! No blogging, no facebook, no WhatsApp, no emails, no phone calls.  Yes, it was intentional and I did not connect to wifi anywhere!! We visited Amsterdam for Christmas holidays, spending time with very close friends doing the bestest things in leisure, a bit of sightseeing and some shopping that includes props too.. Evenings were well spent cooking quick one pot meals and then chitchatting over the dining table for hours, talking bout yesteryears and the good fun we have had over years. Kiddos were kept occupied handing over a gadget each, leaving some peaceful time for ourselves…

Did I mention Props?? Oops… I didn’t mean to leak out here, before the pics… Having mentioned it anyways. I managed to buy some mini cake stands that I have been long hunting, yet another pewter plate ( slightly pricey than the UK ) and some dark klip top bottles !! Offlate any trip is incomplete with a prop bargain, travelling with me 🙂

Before I keep going on about our fantabulous stressfree break, let me come back to you with this super dooper  Mojito.

Mojito’s are typically enjoyed in the summer, but I am never of the opinion to wait for a season to relinquish them. Isn’t it? Celebrations brightens up with the mugs of colorful mocktails and cocktails rather than the regular fizzy drinks And this Christmas party, we had an array of mocktails and Cranberry Mojito was one among them.. Red color burst from the cranberries syrup was in sync with the festive atmosphere.

All this year I have been having fun with juice splashes, making mocktails and juice concoctions. Some of my favourites this year has been

Peach Lemonade, Pomegranate Mojito, Blackcurrant Apple Mocktail & Mango Lemonade. One of my dear blogging partner has come up with 20 Party Drinks to ring your New Year celebrations. Check it out here.

On this very note, I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year 2016.
