Champagne Julep

Simply put: We have champagne, we have lemon juice, we have mint, we had rum. So we made a round of champagne mojitos (just make a regular mojito with champagne instead of soda). Then the rum ran out. But we had some rye, which is like bourbon, which goes in a mint julep. So:

Champagne Julep

1 shot rye
1 oz. lemon juice
3-4 mint leaves
Pinch of sugar

Shake over ice, strain into a champagne flute and top with sparkling wine
