Champagne Tangerine Mojito

Are you looking for a special Valentine kind of cocktail to celebrate your sweetie with this year? Well here's a good one for this time of the year.

We love tangerines during the winter, we love mojitos anytime of year, and champagne is always great especially on Valentine's day. 

Although we are definitely more likely to indulge in a mojito during the months of summer who says they can't be enjoyed anytime of year as long as you have access to fresh mint. 

Which luckily we do have access to all year round.

This is simple, fresh and celebratory.



Champagne Tangerine Mojito

1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz. freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1 TBLSPN superfine sugar
A handful of fresh mint leaves
2 oz. white rum
4ish oz. chilled champagne
Slice of tangerine for garnish

In the bottom of a wide mouth glass, muddle the mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the rum and tangerine juice. Fill the glass with ice and top with champagne.
Garnish with tangerine slice.
