Ingredients

  • 3 Clementines
  • 1/2 cup Ginger Ale
  • 1.5 cup Cranberry Juice
  • handful Frozen Cranberries
  • 4 oz White Rum
  • handful Ice Cubes

Instructions

  • Prepping the Clementine Juice
    Begin by using a fruit knife (often included in a cocktail shaker kit) to gently curl some of the rind for garnish, set aside. Cut the clementine in half and squeeze the juice into a small bowl or container. 
  • Combine the cranberry juice, clementine juice, ice and rum in your cocktail shaker. Make sure the lid is on tightly and SHAKE to mix the ingredients well. 
  • Using the strainer, pour equal portions into your glass. Add 1/2 of the ginger ale along with a couple of frozen cranberries and stir gently to combine. 
  • Garnish
    On a small toothpick, spear 3-4 cranberries and wrap the clementine peel from earlier between. Place on top of your glass and serve. Add additional ice if you want it colder.

Notes

You can prepare your clementines ahead of time, we normally juice and peel them the day before our parties and keep the juice in a sealed container so it is easy to measure the day of! 
If you prefer your drink weaker (or stronger) be sure to adjust the rum to your tastes!
