Green Tea Mojitos!

As you can see from Tea Street's last post, I tried my hand at some Green Tea Mojitos on Good Friday!  A combo of tea and rum, I think they could make any Friday a good one to be honest!

I got the idea from 'The Kitchn' website, which I posted on my Facebook page!

Turned out well!

The recipe for The Kitchn's 'Icey-Cool Green Tea Mojitos':

(adapted from Organic, Shaken and Stirred by Paul Abercrombiemakes one drink

1 tbsp fresh lime juice
4 large mint leaves
2 teaspoons sugar
approx. 1/2 cup brewed green tea, chilled
1 ounce white rum
Muddle the lime juice, mint, and sugar together in a Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavours release. Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea. Stir thoroughly.

These were really easy to make and tasted great!  I'm not sure what green tea others used, but I put matcha green tea in mine as it's easy to brew and super high in antioxidants!  I wish I had frozen more ice cubes though as I couldn't put in as many as needed and the ones I did have melted quite quickly!  
Hopefully this is the start of many tea cocktails..!
