#21295: Had this last night: Rec: Mojitos and Cranberry Mojitos from Weight Watchers

They were both quite good and refreshing. I liked it w/o the rum, but they were light and looked pretty. We had a pitcher of one made w/ limeade and one w/ frozen cranberry juice. Recipe was from Weight Watchers.
12 oz frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 cup(s) mint leaves, fresh, chopped (plus extra for garnish)
3 medium fresh lime(s), 2 Tbsp for juice and 8 wedges for garnish
4 cup(s) ice cube(s), crushed
8 jigger(s) rum, light-variety such as white or silver rum (about 1 cup)
16 oz seltzer, cold
In a medium bowl, combine limeade concentrate, mint leaves and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours for mint to infuse its flavor; strain to remove any solids.
When ready to serve, run a mint leaf around rim of each glass; fill each glass about halfway with ice. To each glass, add 1 ounce rum, 1 1/2 ounces limeade mixture and 1/4 cup seltzer. Stir in several mint leaves and garnish with lime wedge. Yields 1 drink per serving.
For a Rosy Mojito, swap thawed frozen cranberry juice concentrate for the limeade (could affect PointsPlus values).
