Sexy Cranberry Mojito's

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! What do you have planned for you and your significant other? I think this time of year is the perfect time to get closer to your lover. I find it very easy to make my home  festive and warm this time of year. Having a Cocktail ready for my Man when he gets home is a great way to start a little love and laughter.
Tip: Laugh! If you remember nothing else from this blog, keep this one point with you all of the time. There is nothing so inviting, so appealing and so utterly attractive as someone who is having a rip-roaring good time. Think about it. You are around someone who is laughing and what do you think? You think, I want to be a part of that party! You are thinking that that person is flirting, having fun and having the time of his or her life. You know that you want to be in on it, so why not be it? Your Man will think this, too - and will thank you for it more than you can imagine.
8 oz. fresh cranberries
1 cup agave nectar 
1 cup water
20 mint leaves
2 Tablespoon lime juice
4 oz bicardi rum
6 oz. club soda
Put cranberries, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Then lower the heat a bit to medium-low and continue to cook for about 10 minutes, before your berries start bursting. remove from heat.
Once the berry mixture has cooled, Strain them and reserve both the juice which will be the cranberry syrup and the berries separately.
Put about 10 leaves of mint and a T of lime juice in each glass. With the back of a wooden spoon or a muddler mash the mint up.
Now put ice in each glass and pour 2 oz. of the cranberry syrup and add 2 oz of rum to each glass.
Top off each glass with club soda. Add some of the reserved cranberries in for garnish. I also added lime and mint for garnish.
