Notes

Keep the remainder of your champagne fresh using the Rabbit Stainless Steel Wine/Champagne Sealer! 

Ingredients

  • 3/4  Cups  hot water
  • 3/4  Cups  sugar
  • 1 1/2  Cup  mint leaves, packed
  • limes, cut into wedges
  • 16  Ounces  light Rum
  • Cracked ice
  • 24  Ounces  Champagne or sparkling wine

Directions

Create a 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. 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.
