You might be asking yourself “what the heck is friendsgivemas?”, and that’s totally fair since we are pretty sure we coined the term. Our friend group has kids and believe it or not, families of their own to celebrate the holidays with. However, we also enjoy celebrating together, so, insert friendsgivemas.

Friendsgivemas Party

Friendsgivemas (n): A combination of both Christmas and Thanksgiving celebrations for friends who are too busy to celebrate together. 

We love doing a meal together, gift exchange, some fun games, and enjoy some Christmas cocktails. Check out our favorite Christmas cocktail below. 

White Christmas Mojito

  

White Christmas Mojito

Ingredients:
1 cup of lime juice
1/4 cup of packed mint leaves and more for garnish
1/4 – 1/2 cup of sugar (1/4 if you like it less sweet and 1/2 for a sweeter mojito)
1/2 cup of white rum
1/4 – 1/2 cup of coconut rum
1 cup of canned coconut milk
sparkling water
pomegranate arils for garnish
  1. In a large pitcher, muddle the mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar together until the mint leaves have broken down.  I recommend tearing the mint leaves up a little bit before muddling them. Next, in a blender, pulse the white rum, coconut rum, and coconut milk until smooth.  Pour the blended mixture over the lime, mint, and sugar mixture and stir until well blended. Refrigerate and chill.
  2. When ready to serve, add a generous amount of ice to your glasses and then pour the mixture over ice.  Fill your glass about half way with mojito mixture and then top it off with sparkling water. Add a sprig of mint and some pomegranate arils and enjoy!!!
