Thirsty Thursdays!

It is Thursday...and I am thirsty. This is the drink I will be making for my "Get Lit" book club on Friday. Tastes like spring!

Recipe: Champagne Mojitos



  1. 3/4 cup sugar
  2. 3/4 cup water
  3. 1 1/2 cups packed mint leaves, plus 12 mint sprigs, for garnish
  4. 6 limes, cut into wedges
  5. 2 cups light rum
  6. Cracked ice
  7. 3 cups Champagne or sparkling wine
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over high heat just until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the mint leaves and lime wedges and muddle well with a wooden spoon. Add the rum and stir well. Strain the drink into another pitcher.
  3. Fill tall glasses with cracked ice and pour in the drink, filling them about two-thirds full. Top with Champagne, garnish with the mint sprigs and serve.
MAKE AHEAD The mojitos can be prepared through Step 2. Refrigerate the mojitos in the pitcher overnight.
