This Summer's Top Trio: Mint, Lime, and Bubbly

From the Mojito to the Luxury Mojito to the Old Cuban (recipe) to the New Cuban and other new drinks: My latest piece for Tasting Table San Francisco traces the evolution of cocktails with the trio of lime, mint, and champagne. There's even a recipe for The Whaler from Brooke Arthur of Prospect.

And here's the recipe for The Ginger's Trois by Erick Castro of Rickhouse- easy and refreshing!
