Recipe for Iced Green Tea Mojitos
Saturday, 11 April 2015 | Adam
As the weather starts to heat up, slowly but surely, we can finally brave the outdoors again. It’s definitely not the Bahamas outside; but it’s finally warming up enough to enjoy our gardens, take the dog for long strolls in the park and enjoy weekend picnics with the family.
It is a common misconception that tea is reserved for warming us up on a cold winters days. Tea is an innovative and extremely versatile ingredient that can be infused in a variety of different drinks and food products – both hot and cold.
If you want to invite spring into your home, this iced green tea mojito is perfect for encouraging the fresh, colourful and warmer season into your home. Perfect to be enjoyed with an evening meal, at a dinner party and will make for the ideal drink to serve at this year’s first BBQ.
This healthy cocktail is packed full of antioxidants from the green tea and full of fresh, simple ingredients that you probably already have sitting in your kitchen. The taste is the perfect mix between a refreshing iced tea and cool, fresh mojito – and if you leave out the rum you can make a family friendly version too.
- Four large spearmint leaves
- Two teaspoons of agave syrup or one teaspoon of stevia
- One tablespoon of fresh lime juice
- Half a cup of chilled, pre-brewed green tea (we recommend Sencha from our collection)
- 1oz of white rum (leave this out for alcohol free versions)
- Four baby rocket (arugula) leaves
Place the lime juice, rocket, agave and mint into a large glass before muddling the ingredients with a muddler, or spoon if you don’t have one, until the leaves become slightly bruised. Fill the glass with the desired amount of ice before stirring in the rum and green tea. Stir well and serve with fresh mint leaves and a slice of lime.
