Sparkling Mojito Martini

Greetings Divas and Gents! It’s Thursday, so that means a new martini recipe is in order. This week, I want to put a fancy spin on an old favorite. The Sparkling Mojito Martini adds a splash of bubbly to my take on the Mojito Martini. This recipe cuts down on the amount of rum to make room for a little champagne. I think you all will agree that it gives the Mojito Martini a little something extra! Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

3 Mint Leaves
3 oz Light Rum
2 oz Lime Juice
½ oz Champagne
½ oz Water
2 Teaspoons of Sugar
Lime Wedges for Garnish

1. In a martini shaker, muddle mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice for about 2 minutes.
2. Add rum and water to shaker. Shake!
3. Strain mixture into a chilled martini glass.
4. Add splash of Champagne.
5. Garnish with a lime wedge.

So…..what do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. Enjoy and Drink Responsibly!
