As you all know, one of my hobbies is pretending I live in Palm Springs. I’m the biggest wannabe Palm Springs resident ever. Need a pair of giant sunglasses, bunch of giant pool floaties that only get used once a year, or a drink with an umbrella themed after EVERY season?
I’m here for you!
Now let’s see if I can pull off a holiday-flavored Mai Tai! It’s still super fruity and delicious, but I replaced a couple flavors with cranberry and clementine. Does that count? (Please say yes?!)
juice of two clementines
juice of 1/2 a lime
dark rum (or whatever rum you have on hand!)
In a shaker combine 3 ounces cranberry juice, 3 ounces pineapple juice, clementine juice, lime juice, 1 ounce grenadine syrup and 2 ounces of dark rum.
I garnished mine with green sugar sprinkles, some fresh cranberries, a clementine wedge and an umbrella—of course!
