Champagne mojito

Put a few ice cubes into a wine glass then hold 5 mint leaves in the palm of one hand and clap your other hand over it – this will bruise the leaves just enough without making them bitter. Drop the leaves into the glass then pour over 25ml rum, juice ½ lime, 1 tsp sugar syrup and a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Stir very gently then slowly top with champagne.
