Sake Champagne Mojito Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson |

This is an absolutely smooth and delicious cocktail adapted from Pure Food & Wine in NYC.  It is THE PERFECT summer cocktail and a guaranteed hit when entertaining! 

Why Sake? So glad you asked!

Sake is fermented from steamed rice and is surprisingly rich in amino acids.Sake is also free from sulfites which are a known allergen for many people. Sake is very light and comparatively free of hangover-causing congeners. Premium sake is also free from additives and preservatives.

If you’re not drinking, go for an alcohol free version by simply substituting sparkling mineral water for the sake and champagne.  It’s absolutely delicious and will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take a sip!

Even if you don’t give a hoot about health, you and your friends will still enjoy this delicious drink. This is my “go to” cocktail for parties. It’s a summer classic with an exotic and healthy twist!

First, tear the mint leaves off the stem. In a large pitcher, use the back of a wooden spoon to muddle the mint leaves, stevia, and lime juice. Then add the entire bottle of Sake and entire bottle of Champagne. Stir the mixture and serve over lots of ice in rocks glasses or mason jars.
