Mint Tea Mojito Recipe

Mojitos are one of the yummiest drinks out there! Our twist on our Moroccan Mint Tea makes it spectacular. 

Makes 4 drinks

2 tablespoons of One Earth Moroccan Mint Tea
20 cardamom pods, crushed
Boiling Water 
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup packed mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
2-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons white rum
2 tablespoons dark rum
sparkling water

Step One- Make the cardamom tea concentrate: Place the tea and crushed cardamom pods in a heatproof measuring cup, and add boiling water to bring the mixture to the 3/4 cup mark. Let steep 10-20 minutes. 

Step Two- Finish the mojitos: Muddle the mint leaves and sugar together in another measuring cup to bruise the mint. Add the lime and lemon juices, starting with the smaller amounts; stir to dissolve the sugar.

Step Three- Mix It: When the tea has steeped, strain it into the mint mixture, squeezing the tea and cardamom pods to extract all the liquid.

Step Four-  Add the Alcohol: (optional) Strain the mint/tea mixture into a pitcher, squeezing the leaves to extract all the liquid. Stir in the white and dark rums.  Taste, adding additional lime and lemon juice if you like.

Step Five- Finishing Touches: Fill four large tumblers with ice and several mint leaves. Divide the cocktail mixture among the glasses, leaving room for sparkling water. Top each with a bit of sparkling water, stir, and serve.
