Summery Champagne Mojitos

These simple, summery champagne mojitos are muddled with loads of lime and mint for a refreshing bubbly take on the classic mojito recipe. They’re the perfect summer party cocktail!

There’s a beachy, open air bar near where my sister lives in South Florida and the strawberry mojitos there are a force to be reckoned with. Their mojitos are especially exceptional because you sip them under palm trees overlooking the water, so that fact alone sets them apart.

These champagne 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. The bubbly makes everything feel more festive.

When it comes to this mojito recipe, you can skip the traditional rum or keep it in the mix. I like a silver rum for mojitos, but your favorite spiced or coconut rum would also work!

You can make one just for yourself or a make pitcher for all of your friends at your next summer party. Below you’ll find the recipe variation to make it either way!

The key is good simple syrup, all the fresh mint and limes you can get your hands on and the bubbly. Bubbly makes everything better and these champagne mojitos are proof!

Champagne Mojito Ingredients

  • Champagne – A dry champagne, prosecco or sparkling wine all work perfectly for these mojitos, just snag a bottle of your favorite bubbly!
  • Rum – Mojitos typically include rum, which you can include here or skip. I like silver rum or even spiced rum.
  • Simple syrup – You can buy simple syrup, but it’s so easy to make. You can even use berry simple syrup for a fruity twist!
  • Mint – Lots and lots of fresh mint are the cornerstone of any good mojito.
  • Limes – Don’t forget the limes! They’re essential to the fresh, summery flavor profile.

How to Make Champagne Mojitos

Below you’ll find the measurements for both a single mojito and a pitcher. The process for making either is exactly the same! Because of the carbonation you’ll want to serve them right after mixing.

Step 1. Place the limes and mint in the bottom of a cocktail glass or in a large glass pitcher.

Step 2. Add simple syrup to taste. I suggest starting with less and adding more to suit your palate, so you make your mojitos as sweet as you’d personally prefer.

Step 3. Muddle well until the limes and mints are all smashed up. This helps release the flavors and infuse them into the simple syrup.

Step 4. Fill your cocktail glass with ice and add rum (if you chooose) and top with bubbly. Stir well to combine. If you’re making a pitcher, skip the ice in the pitcher and instead serve in ice-filled glasses.

Champagne Mojito Variations

Looking to switch things up a bit? Give these variations of my champagne mojito recipe a try! You’re sure to love them all. (I know I sure do!)

  • Champagne Grapefruit Mojito – Add fresh wedges of grapefruit along with the limes before muddling. It’s so refreshing and delicious!
  • Coconut Champagne Mojito – Choose a coconut rum and add a tiny splash of coconut creme for a tasty tropical twist. (I also love these yummy pineapple mojitos!)
  • Spicy Champagne Mojito – Love a spiced cocktail? Add a couple slices of fresh jalapeño before muddling. The seeds add more heat, so remove them if you prefer less heat.
  • Berry Champagne Mojito – Add strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries (or a mix) before muddling the mint and lime. 
  • Rosé Champagne Mojito – Love rosé as much as I do? Use a bubbly rosé when making these champagne mojitos!
