Green Tea Mojito Cocktail

Hi. I wanted to post the recipe for the Green Tea Mojito that was so popular at the July 25th Storytelling Event. This icy cocktail is the perfect summer thirst quencher!

Green Tea Mojito
Serves 4
Brew 3 & 3/4 cups of Green Lemonade Tea and pour into a 1 quart heat-proof pitcher. Add sugar to hot tea and stir until dissolved. Add peppermint leaves to tea and stir. Allow the tea mixture to cool. Add lime juice and rum to cooled tea. Fill 4 tall glasses with ice and pour Green Tea Mojito over ice. Garnish with a sprig of fresh peppermint.

3 3/4 freshly brewed Green Lemonade Tea (or lemon flavored green tea)
15 large peppermint leaves
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
Juice of 1 small lime
4 ounces white rum (optional)
