Every once and awhile, my husband will treat me to a Sunday morning mimosa. There is something about having bubbly early in the day, with a great brunch, that really makes everything super special. While I certainly enjoy my mimosa time, I felt the need to mix things up a bit for this upcoming spring brunch season. Since I also think mojitos are tons of fun, making them with champagne gives them a lighter taste perfect for brunch!
