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
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
- Muddle raspberries first, then mint.
- Add rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice.
- Shake vigorously.
- Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice.
- Top it with a splash of champagne or sparkling wine.
Makes 1 drink.
