This week’s cocktail is definitely my favorite thus far, and not just because I’m a huge fan of mojitos. It was also one of those Wednesdays that really, really called for a drink. I can’t wait til summer because this is going to be a perfect “sit outside on a sunny patio” kind of drink.
This fizzy mojito is a combination of the usual ingredients (lime juice, simple syrup, mint, rum), it also includes a dash of bitters and some sparkling wine. Because I was lazy and/or out of some ingredients, I subbed just a sprinkling of sugar for the syrup, which worked, and did a mixture of dark and coconut rum, which really worked.
You can find the original recipe here on Martha Stewart.com.
Remember, life is better bubbly. And happy new year!
