I really fell in love with mojitos this summer. I enjoy the fresh mint that makes this drink refreshing and also makes you feel like you are putting something healthy into your body while putting down a few ounces of liquor. A little mint, a little liquor, perfect! I had a few bottles of champagne left over from the wedding – crazy, huh? – and pulled them out from the back of the pantry to use for this drink. The blush champagne really perked up the mojito giving it a nice color effect. Who doesn’t love a little pink tint to their mojito?
