Star vs. Chopped Cocktail ShowdownWe 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?

    Where are all the black shows on the food network.
    Where is Cooking with the Neely's, Cooking for real, Big Pappa's house, and even Party with Artie.
    All that's ever on the food network is Diners, Drive ins and Drives, Barefoot Contessa, Iron chef and Giada.
    Can we have a little variety, and put some color on this blank canvas smh.

      I personally did not care for any of the shows you mentioned above. Maybe it has nothing to do with black, white, etc…just which hosts are the most appealing to the public.

    Guy's Mojito actually made my mouth water the second I saw it. Aaron's margarita gave me a refreshing chill when I first saw it. Guy's mojito calls for vodka – I prefer rum. Aaron's margarita has too much sugar for my taste. I will have to drink a few more of each before I can choose.
