Whip up a big batch of these festive holiday mojitos!

Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1½ cups packed mint leaves
    • 6 limes, cut into wedges
    • 2 cups light rum
    • Cracked ice
    • 3 cups Champagne or sparkling wine
    • 12 sprigs mint

Preparation

1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over high heat just until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. (Basically, make simple syrup, using a one-to-one ratio of sugar and water).

2. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the mint leaves and lime wedges and muddle well with a wooden spoon. Add the rum and stir well. Strain the drink into another pitcher.

3. Fill tall glasses with cracked ice and pour in the drink, filling them about two-thirds full. Top with Champagne, garnish with the mint sprigs and serve.
