Its Friday and I sit watching the clock and dreaming about cocktails with my friends this evening. I can’t help but wonder if I could stir up some cocktail using my favourite ingredient ‘tea’. chanced upon this super easy recipe of a green tea Mojito. It is the perfect summer cocktail, cool and refreshing with the added benefit of antioxidant rich green tea.
- 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 4 large spearmint leaves, plus more for garnish
- 4 baby arugula leaves
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 cup brewed Glendale Nilgiri green tea, chilled
- 30 ml white rum
Muddle the lime juice, mint, arugula, and sugar together in a tall 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 well and garnish with mint and lime. Makes one serving.
