Bring the taste of summer to your springtime brunch with these Bubbly Strawberry Mojitos!
Mother Nature is such a tease, especially in March. These hints of spring weather we’ve been enjoying in the last few weeks have me dreaming of lazy summer nights in the backyard. I.Can.Hardly.Wait. But Monday’s dumping of snow in my backyard makes my summer longings far from reality. The wall-to-wall white carpet is not exactly the lush green oasis I envision when I think warm weather. Buuuuuut, if I close my eyes tightly and take of sip of these Bubbly Strawberry Mojitos, I’m pretty close to that summer idyll…if only in my mind.
Strawberries are always one of the first berries to grace the markets in spring, so naturally they are the perfect garnish for this light and effervescent beverage. These Bubbly Strawberry Mojitos are fantastic to serve a group of guests as you can make the whole batch in advance and simply top the glasses with bubbly when guests arrive. (Not to mention that how fun is it to have a drink placed in your hand the moment you walk in the door?) I chose a pretty-in-pink sparkling Rosé wine simply for how fun it looks in the glass, but if pink isn’t your thing, any sparkling wine will do nicely.
Although it doesn’t look it outside my window right now, spring feels right around the corner with a Bubbly Strawberry Mojito in my hand.
