Bubbles always remind me of a refreshing atmosphere en la playita and fun with friends. Really, they are the synonym to having a good time.
I’ve been looking for a cocktail to impress my sisters that are coming to visit us since our move to Orlando. No beach here, however, that won’t stop me from thinking how to knock their socks off, I wanted a sweet vino to be the star!
Don’t know what vino to choose? Let me tell you, Sutter Home has a fantastic variety of award-winning California wines and they are so affordable! Furthermore, you can find them in most stores.
Now, there are strawberries, pineapple, mint, coconut rum and Sutter Home Bubbly Pink Moscato involved!
Here’s what you’ll need to make two Tropical Bubbly Mojitos:
2 teaspoons white fine sugar (you could also use brown sugar if you prefer)
1/2 cup of fresh strawberries
1/2 cup of fresh pineapple
2 big limes
12 mint leaves
4 ounces of coconut rum
8 ounces of Sutter Home Bubbly Pink Moscato
How you bring this sabroso tropical delight to life? I’m glad you ask!
First, gather around some friends, some pleneras and then let’s get shakin’. Get a cocktail glass and add the strawberries, pineapple, and sugar. Squeeze the juice of a lime. Add half the mint leaves as we are preparing this recipe one cocktail at a time 😉
Muddle the fruit. If your lime didn’t have a lot of juice, feel free to add one ounce of water to the mix before muddling.
At this point, you have a decision to make. You can pick your own adventure with this mojito. Do you want the muddled fruit in your cocktail or not? That’s the question, my friend.
I’m all about texture, so are all my sisters, so I strained my drink before going forward. Your choice, this bubbly mojito is very refreshing either way.
If you haven’t tried this Sutter Home Bubbly Pink Moscato yet, do yourself a favour and go get some right now. Go! It’s so good, in cocktails or just on its own. Your friends will be so happy you picked a wine that will make any occasion special. And you know, that we Puerto Ricans don’t need much to have a party to celebrate any occasion.

Ok, where were we? That’s right, now it’s when the magic happens. Add the coconut rum to your cocktail mix and top it off with the bubbly vino.
