Christmas Cranberry Lime Mojito

Ingredients:

  • 2- 12 ounce bags of fresh cranberries
  • 2-3 limes
  • 1 cup plus 3-4 Tbsp sugar, divided
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 bottle white rum (such as Bacardi Silver)
  • Fresh mint
  • Soda water
  • 3-4 bottles, 10”-12” high with a rubber stopper and snap closure

Instructions:

To make the infused rum:
Pour 1 tablespoon of sugar into each bottle and add a little rum. Swirl it around until the sugar is starting to dissolve.

Poke holes in all the cranberries with either a skewer or knife. Fill each bottle 1/4 way with the cranberries. Take one of the limes and slice the rind into thin strips. Divide half the rinds between each bottle. Add more cranberries then more lime rinds then more cranberries until about 3/4 full of berries. There will be leftover berries to use as garnish for the drinks which can be frozen until using again.

Using a funnel or a measuring cup, carefully fill the bottles almost all the way with rum. Secure the lids and gently tip the bottles back and forth to mix the sugar and get liquid into the cranberries. Let infuse for at least 2 weeks and up to two months. The longer the infusion time the stronger the cranberry flavor.

To make the Mojitos:
Combine water, lime juice and one cup sujar in a sauce pan and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool completely.

Slice the remaining limes into thin wedges.

Add a few mint leaves with a teaspoon of the lime simple syrup to tall mojito/collins glasses and bruise slightly with a cocktail muddler. Add a little ice and some cranberries (fresh or frozen) and a few lime slices, then layer again 1-2 more times. Add 2 ounces of the cranberry infused rum, another teaspoon of the lime simple syrup to each glass and top with soda water. Garnish with cranberries, mint and lime. Serve immediately.

You can give the other infused rum bottles away as holiday gifts!

Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

Ingredients:

  • 2- 2 cup jars with tight fitting lids
  • 4 cups Zulka Morena Sugar
  • 1 - 1 1/2 C almond oil (olive, grape seed, or any other light oil)
  • 3 Tbsp raspberry or cranberry juice
  • 20-30 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

Divide the sugar between two bowls. Add the oil a little at a time to each bowl, stirring gently or using your hands to mix until you get the consistency you want. You don’t want it too dry or too oily. In one bowl add the vanilla extract and combine well. In the other bowl add the peppermint essential oil and juice and mix well.

Layer the sugar mixtures in the jars half a cup of each at a time, tapping down with a spoon or hand before adding next layer. Close lid and add decorative ribbon, candy cane, and spoon or scoop.

Cranberry Apple Blueberry Pie

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Zulka Morena sugar
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) cut into small squares, very cold
  • 4 Tbsp full fat sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp ice water
  • Filling:
  • 1 lb cranberries (fresh or frozen - if frozen don’t thaw)
  • 1 lb blueberries (fresh or frozen - if frozen don’t thaw)
  • 1 cup Zulka Morena sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 2 lbs peeled, sliced sweet-tart apples (baking variety - honey crisp, Gala, Pink lady)
  • Egg wash: 1 egg, mixed with a little water

Instructions:

For the pie crust:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and sugar. Using a pastry blender or a fork, work in the chilled butter cubes until the mixture is uniformly crumbly and combined. Add the sour cream and blend again by hand until just combined. Add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together.

Divide the dough into two discs, one slightly larger than the other and flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least one hour up to several days.

While the dough is chilling make the filling:
In a medium sauce pan, combine all of the filling ingredients except the starch, apples and egg wash. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer for 10 minutes. Mix the starch with a little water, add to the pan and stir until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the apples. Let cool completely. This can be made several days ahead of time.

To assemble and bake the pie:
Preheat oven to 400 F.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the larger disk of pie dough to about 12 inches, making sure it’s not too thin in any spots. Gently lift and place into a 9” pie pan and press down gently onto the sides of the pan. Press the dough onto the edges of the lip of the pan and trim any excess. Fill the pie with the filling using a spoon, leaving any excess juice. Roll out the remaining dough and use a small leaf shaped cookie cutter to cut out about 60 leaves. Brush the pie dough edges with the egg wash and place the leaves onto the top, slightly overlapping each one. When you get to the last one lift one leaf to tuck it in under it. Brush the tops of the leaves with the egg wash. Spoon any of the remaining juice from the filling mixture over the top of the pie filling, then top with more pie crust leaves, brushing them with the egg wash.

Bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until the crust is starting to brown. Lower the heat to 350, cover the pie with foil if it’s getting too browned, and bake for another 35 min. Remove from the oven to cool before serving.
