Green Tea Mojito
A twist on the classic mojito,
this drink is perfect for sipping in the afternoon sun.
- 4 oz (1/2 cup) water
- 1 Mojito Mint Green Tea with Matcha tea bag
- 6-8 mint leaves
- 2.5 oz white rum
- 2 tsp sugar
- Fresh lime, sliced or lime juice (to taste)
Heat up the water to around 175-180 degrees F, below it boils. Brew the tea bag in the hot water for 3-4 minutes. Remove and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Let chill in the fridge.
Add mint leaves and lime slices (or just the lime juice) to the glass and muddle. Add the rum, stir and then pour the entire drink over a cup filled three-quarters full with ice. Garnish with a lime slice and/or more mint leaves.
