Wine Mojitos

Today we raise a glass to National Mojito Day! We have created two refreshing wine mojito cocktails with unique summer combinations that you will be sippin on all season! Run to your kitchen and start prepping!

STRAWBERRY WINE MOJITO

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 Lime
  • 8 Mint, fresh leaves
  • 2 Strawberries, large
  • ounce of white rum
  • 2 ounces of White Cabernet
  • Club soda
  • Ice

DIRECTIONS

  • Add the mint leaves, two lime wedges, and strawberries to a highball or collins glass. Use a muddler to gently muddle the mint, lime, and strawberries (but not too much as you don’t want to break apart the mint leaves).
  • Add the two remaining lime wedges. Muddle gently to release the lime juice, again being careful not to smash the mint leaves and break them apart.
  • Fill the glass with ice and pour the rum and White Cabernet directly over the ice. Top off each glass with club soda and stir just to combine. Serve garnished with a sprig of fresh mint, lime, strawberries, and a straw. Enjoy!

 

COCONUT WINE MOJITOS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ounce white rum
  • 2 ounces Coconut Sparkling
  • 2 1/2 Limes
  • Ice
  • Bundle of Mint leaves
  • Toasted Coconut flakes, if desired

DIRECTIONS

  • Dip each glass in water and then roll in toasted coconut. Add 8 mint leaves and two lime wedges (from half of a lime) to a highball or collins glass. Use a muddler to gently muddle the mint and lime (but not too much as you don’t want to break apart the mint leaves).
  • Add the rum, Coconut Sparkling, juice of 2 limes.
  • Fill the glass with ice and pour the rum and Coconut Sparkling directly over the ice.  Serve garnished with a sprig of fresh mint and lime and a straw. Enjoy!
