Mojito Punch.

A new take on the classic Mojito, we used a vintage punch bowl to make this delicious mint cocktail easy to serve at your next party or gathering.

Mint, lime, and rum all in one drink? Count me in! Mojitos are a refreshing, mint-filled cocktail to make when it is warm outside. I’m never at a shortage of sprawling mint in my garden so finding recipes to use the leaves in makes me pretty happy. With plenty of zest and sweetness of flavor, the mojito is a perfect cocktail for a party.

I love making cocktails in punch bowls because it makes hosting that much easier. I am constantly pulling my punch bowl out during the holiday season so I wanted to challenge myself to get some more spring + summer rotations in the mix.

I throw some muddled mint leaves, freshly sliced limes and lime juice, mint simple syrup, rum, and club soda in my favorite vintage punch bowl and serve them up in some vintage punch glasses. Not only is this drink a hit at parties, but it makes for a beautiful center piece on my table or kitchen counter.

I love serving it this way at parties, because it is so easy to serve to a large group of guests, rather than muddling mint for each cup. I could see this one being the perfect baby or bridal shower cocktail too.

This year i wanted to add a fun twist to my classic punch, but I couldn’t quite figure out what. When I was out sourcing some vintage for the site, my eyes fell on this beautiful glass punch bowl. I knew that would bring a classic, vintage touch to this holiday staple. The punch bowl filled with cranberries serves as an instant centerpiece for your table, a win/win for this effortless entertainer.

I even found my Grandmother’s original type-written recipe card in her bundle that was passed down for me. I truly treasure each and every one but this was one I had forgotten was part of the large assortment. I altered it just a bit with the garnish to make it extra seasonal this time of year.

For the ice cubes, we simply filled the tray with cranberries and pieces of rosemary and then filled with water before freezing. These turned out just gorgeous and fun, but you could also use a bundt pan for more of a classic ring if you so choose.

The deep red color ended up looking beautiful against the glass details. Adding a hint of greenery gave it just the holiday twist it needed. It’s fun to garnish each glass with a sprig of rosemary too, or a skewered toothpick full of sugared cranberries. I would love to hear your favorite holiday drink recipes + fun ways you like to serve them. Let me know in the comments.
