Cherry & Champagne Mojitos


Fresh Cherry Champagne Mojitos

Today’s recipe, which is inspired by my usual summer obsession with cherries, my love of mojitos, and the fortuitous discovery of a bottle of champagne in the back of the fridge just when I was feeling bummed that we were out of club soda. 

I had no game plan going into the making of this cocktail – I just started muddling cherries/mint and measuring out half shots of the usual mojito ingredients. The end result was a bright, fizzy, fruity-sweet concoction packed with yummy cherry flavor. It actually reminded me a lot of the cherry mojito I like to order at our favorite cajun seafood place.


  My version is a little drier, possibly because champagne is sorta dry-ish and less sweet than tonic water/club soda. Maybe?
