Champagne Mojito Cocktail Drink

Who doesn’t love a delicious Mojito!  For those of you who have never had one, a  Mojito is traditionally made of five ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime, sparkling water and mint. The original Cuban recipe uses spearmint or yerba buena, a mint variety very popular in Cuba.  The combination of sweetness, refreshing citrus and mint flavors are intended to complement the potent kick of the rum, and have made this clear highball a popular summer drink.  Well now it’s time to sparkle the Mojito up with Bubbly!
