Cranberry and brown sugar mojitos
The perfect Christmassy cocktail Ė crisp, with a warming brown-sugar- rum glow. Lovely finished with a grating of nutmeg.
10 limes, each cut into 8 wedges

Ingredients
200g frozen cranberries, (see note)
Small bunch of mint, leaves picked
10 tbs demerara or raw sugar
A big bag of ice
2 cups (500ml) good-quality dark rum
1L (4cups) soda water

Step 1
Prepare each glass with a wedge of lime, a few cranberries, a pinch of mint leaves and 1 tbs demerara sugar. You can do all of this before hand and store the glasses in the fridge until youíre ready to serve.

Step 2
Use a cocktail muddler (or, if you donít have one, the end of a rolling pin) to gently squash the lime, cranberries and mint together in the glass, until all of the juice has been pressed out and the sugar starts to dissolve.

Step 3
Take the bag of ice out of the freezer, then cover with a tea towel and give it a good bash with a rolling pin until itís all crushed. Fill each glass with the ice.

Step 4
Pour 50ml rum into each glass and top up with soda water. Use a stirrer to swizzle the whole lot together, so the rum and all the goodness at the bottom gets thoroughly mixed. Serve with sprigs of mint.

My wife (and many stateside) use vodka in lieu of rum. I love rum but with the glucose score, beer, red wine and scotch for me nowadays.

I have never been a rum fan and only ever drank it when it was free, but when making mixed drinks rum actually mixes well to get a nice full flavor
