Champagne Mojito


When it comes to cocktails and drinks I love nothing more than a good glass of champagne or a refreshing mojito. Since a mojito uses club soda to add a little fizz and carbonation to the drink I decided to see what it would taste like to use champagne instead. This is definitely a pretty strong cocktail option so please, as always drink responsibly. Do you like to experiment & mix cocktails? If so, leave me a comment with your favorite drink below!

You'll Need:

1 spoon of white sugar
2 ounces of white rum 
Handful of fresh mint leaves
2  whole limes (one for muddling - one for garnishing)
Champagne (I found mine at Whole Foods)
Ice cubs

Bar tools:

(1) Tool to muddle
(2) Shaker (mine is no longer available but this is it's replacement)
(3) Shot glass for measuring
(4) Champagne flute (I love this Crate & Barrel option - they are so elegant!)

To Make:

Muddle sugar and lime in the bottom of your shaker
Add a handful of mint leaves and continue to muddle until you smell the mint
Add 2 ounces of rum and ice and shake until mixed well [10 times is good]
Strain into chilled champagne flute 
Top with champagne and garnish

    1. Thanks Brooke! I wish I had fresh mint (or a place outside to grow it!) I always end up killing my herbs! I definitely don't have a green thumb lol
