TGIF! The beau and I have been decking out our home with Christmas decor and it’s making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. To keep with the same theme, this cranberry mojito is not only beautiful…it is darn delicious and is sure to fill you with the holiday spirit. Enjoy!

Trying to put together a recipe for something similar and wanted to ask how you boiled your cranberries. Just in water or with sugar? Thanks!

The stripped gold glass is vintage, the shot glass was a gift.

Pretty glasses! Where are they from?
