Happy Hour: Raspberry Mojito Royale

Jul 1 2011 - 2:22pm
The start of a long weekend calls for a celebratory cocktail, and today I'm toasting with this fizzy, raspberry mojito [1]! It's got all of the usual suspects of a classic mojito — rum, lime juice, and mint — but it's given a girlie twist with the addition of raspberries and sparkling wine. The libation is fruity, refreshing, and downright delicious. The only problem with it? It's too easy to drink! Start making a second round before you've finished the first and you'll be good to go. Here's the easy recipe.
