Recipe Review: Icy-Cool Green Tea Mojitos Straight Up Cocktails and Spirits
Makes one drink
- 1 tablespoon
fresh lime juice
large mint leaves (I substituted 1 shiso leaf, torn into several large pieces)
- 2 teaspoons
- Approximately 1/2 cup
brewed green tea, chilled
- 1 ounce
Muddle the lime juice, mint (or shiso), and sugar together in a Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavors release. Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea. Stir thoroughly.
To serve as a pitcher drink: Multiple the ingredients by the number of guests. Muddle the lime juice, mint, and sugar. Combine with the green tea and white rum in a pitcher and stir to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
