Warm weather calls for ice-cold cocktails. And this one, my friends, is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next outdoor gathering. We all know the classic mojito: mint, rum, lime juice, simple syrup and club soda (the fizz!). Well, my take is just as yummy but amps up the fruit and color for spring. Oh, and I swapped club soda for some rosé, because no drink is complete without bubbly. Cheers to that!

Ingredients

  • 3 strawberries, sliced
  • half a lime, plus other half for garnish
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 6 ounces sparkling rosé

Directions
