The Old Cuban Rum Cocktail

If you’ve never had an Old Cuban, it is very much like a Mojito. The main difference is the use of a dark rum instead of white, and the addition of some sparkling wine. It’s still full of minty goodness and feels kind of like a celebratory version of a mojito. Perfect for Spring!
