There’s a great beachy, open air bar a few miles from where my sister lives in South Florida and the mojitos there are a force to be reckoned with. To be honest, I’m pretty sure there’s nothing special about their mojitos except for the fact that you sip them under palm trees overlooking the water, but that fact alone sets them apart. These mojitos are special not because they make palm trees appear in your backyard, but because they are made with champagne (or your favorite prosecco) and that elevates them entirely. You can skip the traditional rum or keep it in the mix. You can make one just for yourself or a pitcher for all your friends. (I’ve included recipe variations for all of the above.) The key is a good simple syrup, all the fresh mint and limes you can get your hands on and, of course, those bubbles. Bubbly makes everything better and these champagne mojitos are proof of that!
