Keep the summer vibe going with this Mojito Sangria. This crisp drink is the perfect party drink, but it is also a refreshing drink to have on hand for a relaxing evening on the deck or patio. Try my Summer Sangria or Frosted Lemonade for other thirst-quenching, don’t want summer to end, drinks!
There is nothing like a refreshing drink to offer guests at your next party or to enjoy after a long day. I picture myself sipping this lovely Mojito Sangria as the sun goes down, reflecting on a beautiful day. Since mint is known to be such a calming herb, it is no wonder a Mojito Sangria is a wonderful way to wind down or relax.
Mojito Sangria Recipe
The traditional Mojito recipe has five ingredients, and it is one of the most popular rum-based highball recipes. By simply adding Prosecco to the mix, you now have a Mojito Sangria! I know the traditional Sangria is made with red wine, but the drink has definitely been evolving over the past few years, with many recipes using white wine and even Prosecco in the drink.
So, I took the Classic Mojito and simply added Prosecco to the mix to create this easy, delicious drink.
Are there Variations I can Try?
If Prosecco is not available, or you are just looking for a change of pace, there are alternatives to sparkling wine that you can use for the Mojito Sangria. To keep the bubbliness, try branching out with some other carbonated beverages like
- Anna Cava
Are you looking for a non-alcoholic Mojito Sangria? I recommend substituting the rum with a combination of grape juice and orange juice. As for the Prosecco, there are quite a few non-alcoholic champagne and sparkling wines to choose from. You could even use club soda, but you won’t get the sweetness.
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup lime juice
- 20 – 40 mint leaves, based on preference
- 1 cup white rum
- 750 ml sparkling white wine (Prosecco), chilled
- 3 limes, sliced
- Muddle the mint.
- Combine the lime juice, muddled mint, sugar, rum, limes, and sparkling wine in a large pitcher.
- Serve in glasses over ice.
