Nothing says summer like an ice cold, refreshing cocktail. One of our favorites is a mojito, and it happens to be National Mojito Day on Saturday, July 11th. In honor of the minty mixture, here are four mojito variations.

1. Champagne Mojito: (Serves twelve)

 • 3/4 cup Sugar
 • 3/4 cup Water
 • 1 1/2 cups packed Mint Leaves
 • 6 Limes, cut into wedges
 • 16 oz. Light Rum
 • Cracked Ice
 • 24 oz. Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Directions: Create simple syrup by mixing equal parts hot water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. In a large pitcher, combine the simple syrup with mint leaves and lime wedges. Muddle ingredients with the Rabbit Push Muddler (www.metrokane.com). Add rum and stir well. Fill a high ball glass with cracked ice and pour in the mixture, filling it about two-thirds full. Top with champagne, garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
