Summer Cocktail: White Wine Mojito

I came across a recipe for a white wine mojito in a special Whole Foods publication and was instantly inspired! I love wine and I love mojito’s so it was a no-brainer for me.

I changed the recipe a bit and this is what I ended up with:

1 bottle white wine
1 cup sparkling lemonade
1 cup chopped mint leaves
2 limes (sliced and juiced)

Mix in a pitcher with a little ice and drink away (well, in moderation of course!) – this was such a refreshing, fun summer cocktail – perfect for 4th of July celebrations and you could easily add some frozen blueberries and raspberries for an extra festive drink. I will be making this again very soon!

What is your favorite summer cocktail?

    Oh, it's been a while since I've drank alochol…I like a good old fashioned virgin pina colada – out of a pineapple or coconut, of couse!

    Hello,
    I also have recently had one of the white wine mojitos actually served at one the Whole Foods Stores here in California. You are right, they are delicious but interestly the recipe you gave alters drasticly from the one they gave me at the store. Mmmm…It might be interesting to compare the two in a taste test.

    Lynn, thanks for stopping by! I rarely follow exact directions but if I remember correctly I didn't find one of the ingredients at trader joe's so I switched it up a bit! Still very good but I wish I could try theirs! Our wf's don't have alcohol! 😦

  4. Really interesting post. I’ll visit more often.
