Festive Holiday Mojito

This holiday mojito is the perfect festive mocktail for the holiday season! It's refreshing, a little bit sweet and has all the holiday color and flavor! This recipe makes two mocktails, but it can easily be scaled as a punch. If you prefer a cocktail, feel free to add 1 ounce of white rum per person.
