VOTE: Star vs. Chopped Cocktail Showdown

Related To:

We challenged two prestigious groups — Chopped judges and Food Network Star winners — to a summer recipe showdown. All season long, we'll present head-to-head matchups of mouthwatering summer recipes from each team — from refreshing cocktails to fresh farmers-market salads to the juiciest backyard burgers. By voting each week here on FN Dish or on our Fan Feed, you’ll determine the winning recipes.

At the end of the summer, the team that tallies up the most wins will celebrate with an all-star Labor Day party menu. Who will prevail as Summer Showdown champion — Star or Chopped?

This week, Guy Fieri and Aarón Sánchez are shaking up fresh takes on two favorite summer cocktails: the margarita and the mojito. Whose will be the signature drink at your next party? Cast your votes below!

Cocktail Showdown: Guy’s Double-Apple Mojito vs. Aarón’s Margarita Granita

Guy's fruit-focused spin on the classic mojito adds apple juice plus red and green apple slices to the minty refresher.

No need for a frozen margarita machine or even a blender for Aarón's easy granita. The margarita mixture can be prepared two days ahead, frozen, then scraped into glasses when ready to serve.

Whose cocktail will you sip next?
