Moroccan Mint Tea

Moroccan Mint Tea

I love Moroccan Mint Tea, so it was the first thing I chose to prepare for my Daring Cooks’ Middle Eastern Breakfast.  It traditionally hails from the Maghreb region (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia), but it has now spread throughout the Arab world.  It is more like a “social drink” served to guests and I would…

I made this Pineapple Mojito to serve to my friends on New Year’s Eve as an aperitivo, just to start things off before we sat down for dinner.  We had a Spanish theme that night and I know Mojito is not a Spanish cocktail, but I made a little exception as it is one of…
