The start of a long weekend calls for a celebratory cocktail, and today I'm toasting with this fizzy, raspberry mojito! It's got all of the usual suspects of a classic mojito — rum, lime juice, and mint — but it's given a girlie twist with the addition of raspberries and sparkling wine. The libation is fruity, refreshing, and downright delicious. The only problem with it? It's too easy to drink! Start making a second round before you've finished the first and you'll be good to go. Here's the easy recipe.
4 raspberries Makes 1 drink.
6 mint leaves
1 1/2 oz. white rum
3/4 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Splash of Champagne or sparkling wine
Makes 1 drink.
