It’s officially the Christmas season and I couldn’t be happier. My apartment is officially in the holiday spirit, complete with a fresh tree that I bought on Monday. There’s quite a few little things that need to be done, but the majority of the decorations are up and being enjoyed. I have a couple days off of work coming up so I’ll be cozied up in my house, finishing the majority of the decorations (and I’ll be sure to take pictures!).
This dark rum and lime juice cocktail is the perfect holiday drink. The dark rum warms you right up, and the brightness of the lime juice is perfect. I added a handful of sugared cranberries (there are recipes all over the internet) to add a touch of sweetness and a festive look. Sugared cranberries are delicious on their own, but even better when put in a cocktail.
- 1 1/2 oz dark rum
- 1 oz lime juice
- Soda water
- Sugared cranberries, to garnish
- In a glass, pour in the dark rum and lime juice. fill with crushed ice and stir. Top with soda water and garnish with sugared cranberries.
