Mojito is my favourite drink hands down. I love a classic mint and lime Mojito that reminds me of my days in Cuba, but I also like to experiment with different flavour (and colour) combinations like with my Pomegranate Mojito or my Pineapple Mojito. I made today’s version for my daughter’s 8th birthday party… no, I did not serve this to the kids!! It was an adult only treat and I served it in tiny shooters: I like to make something for the parents too. As the theme of the party was “high tea”, the drink HAD to have tea in it… so I came up with this Green Tea Mojito. It was delicious and very refreshing, perfect for any party! Cheers!
Green Tea Mojito
Green Tea Mojito - delicious and very refreshing, perfect for any party
- ½ lime cut in wedges
- 10 mint leaves better if you find yerba buena or spearmint
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 45 ml white rum
- 125 ml – ½ cup green tea
- 1 cup ice cubes
- More mint leaves and 1 slice of lime for decoration
Brew the green tea, mix in the 2 tablespoons of caster sugar and let it cool down.
Put the mint leaves and the lime wedges in a Mojito glass (or if your muddler does not fit the Mojito glass like mine, do this in a separate bowl). Crush the mint and lime together to release their juices.
Fill the glass (or transfer to a Mojito glass and then fill it) with the ice cubes.
Add the rum and fill the glass with the cold and sweetened green tea. Mix.
Decorate with a slice of lime and more mint leaves.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
