If you are looking for a fresh and fun tiki-styled cocktail with a bit of ‘savoir vivre,’ try this aged rum, bitters, fresh lime juice and mint blend topped with sparkling, chilled champagne.


  • 1-1/2 ounce aged rum
  • 3/4 fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 simple syrup
  • 10 mint leaves plus 1 to garnish
  • dash old fashioned bitters
  • 1 ounce champagne, chilled


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the champagne and garnish, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds and then double strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Top the drink with the chilled champagne, garnish with the mint leaf and then serve immediately.
