    Whip up a big batch of these festive holiday mojitos!

    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.
