This rum and cranberry juice cocktail is sweet tart and perfectly balanced! This easy-to-drink cocktail takes just a few minutes to whip up.


  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) light or white rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) unsweetened 100% cranberry juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) lime juice
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) simple syrup or pure maple syrup*
  • For the garnish: lime slice (optional)


  1. Add the rum, cranberry juice, Cointreau, lime juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake until cold. 
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass. Serve garnished with a lime slice.


*If you can only find sweetened cranberry juice, use half the simple syrup (or less, if you like drinks on the tart side).
