That’s right, I said Sake Champagne Mojito and you’re gonna love it!! 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!

You know me, I always modify my recipes to make them as healthy as possible so this recipe is sugar free. I’ve also provided an alcohol free version for the kiddos and anyone looking for a fun cocktail without the hooch!

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!
