Happy Hour: Mistletoe Mojito


A great way to officially kick off the holiday season is to mix up a festive drink! How luscious is this Christmas cocktail? It features the flavors of a classic mojito — rum and mint — but contains a twist. Instead of being topped with soda water, Pomegranate 7UP is floated on top. The boring lime garnish is jazzed up with jewel-like pomegranate seeds. The final drink is visually stunning and dangerously delicious. To shake one up today,



Mistletoe Mojito
From 7 Up

1 oz. fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. superfine sugar
8 fresh mint leaves
2 oz. white rum
2 tsp. pomegranate seeds
4 oz. Pomegranate 7UP
1 mint sprig
1 lime wedge

  1. In a highball glass, muddle lime juice, sugar and mint leaves until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add rum and pomegranate seeds.
  3. Fill glass with ice and top with Pomegranate 7UP. Garnish with mint sprig and lime wedge. Enjoy.

Makes 1 mojito.

Pomegranate 7-up? Interesting flavor. And, an interesting twist to the mojito. I am actually drinking Trader Joe's 100% Pomegranate juice right now.
