Cranberry and ginger mojito

This cranberry ginger mojito is such a fab Christmas cocktail. It’s got loads of festive flavour but is so easy to make. PLUS you can make it in huge batches. The cranberry and ginger syrup can easily be made a few days ahead and kept in the fridge and as all the flavour and magic of this cocktail is in the syrup, you could easily top it with ginger beer/soda water/lemonade and make virgin mojitos for the kids or your guests who don’t drink alcohol. So versatile!
