Champagne Mojito recipe

For National Mojito Day we’re getting all fancy and adding some Champagne to this simple classic cocktail. Well, we are Champagne Central, after all!

And if you make one (or several!) at home, remember to tag us in your Instagram and Facebook posts.

Champagne Mojito

You’ll need: collins glass, muddler, bar spoon


3 lime wedges
Small handful of mint leaves
25ml white rum
Juice of half a lime
1 tsp sugar syrup
Garnish: mint sprig and lime wedge


1. Muddle the lime wedges and mint together in a collins glass to release their flavour.
2. Add the rum, lime juice and sugar syrup (take a look at our recipe for sugar syrup below).
3. Fill the glass with crushed ice, then top with Champagne. Give the drink a gentle stir with a bar spoon to ensure the ingredients are combined.
4. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge.

How to make your own sugar syrup

In a saucepan, dissolve 100g caster sugar and 50ml water over a low heat. Leave to cool and keep in the fridge (if you’re making lots of drinks, then scale up the recipe – just use half the amount of water to sugar).

If you don’t have time to make your own sugar syrup, then just add 1 tsp caster sugar to your drink – just make sure to stir really well, so that the sugar dissolves.
