4 mint leaves
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice (fresh)
1 ounce white rum
½ cup brewed green tea (chilled)
6 ice cubes
1. Muddle the sugar, mint, and lime juice together in a glass until the mint leaves are slightly bruised. This helps to release the flavors.
2. Add the ice cubes, rum, and green tea and stir thoroughly.
3. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- To serve the cocktail as a pitcher drink, multiply the ingredients with the number of guests. For a more intimate setting, make the cocktails by the glass.
- If you don’t want to use raw sugar, substitute it with stevia or agave.
- You can replace green tea with any other type of tea.
- If you can’t get hold of mint leaves, substitute them with shiso leaves (Japanese).
- If you don’t drink alcohol, leave out the rum and make a lovely mocktail.
