I love a good cocktail, especially during the holidays. I'm not one who really drinks that much, but it's nice to have a drink or two during parties or celebrations. This holiday season I wanted to create something light and refreshing, but still full of flavor. This Cranberry Mojito turned out to be exactly what I was looking for!

Made with light cranberry juice and DASANI sparkling water, this mojito is low in calories and sugar. DASANI sparkling water is the perfect mixer because it has ZERO calories, no added colors, is caffeine-free, and naturally flavored. It adds the perfect amount of flavor and bubbles to this cocktail! Add fresh mint, lime juice and whole cranberries and it not only looks festive, but tastes festive too.

DASANI Sparkling water comes in four delicious flavors - Lime, Berry, Lemon, and Black Cherry - and is available in a 12 pack of 12 oz cans. I've been sipping on the Black Cherry lately, which is equally as delicious as the Lime! I found all the flavors of the sparkling water at my local Walmart.
