mint mojitoI have to admit…

When I make mojitos, I cheat. Yes. I said it. I cheat. I do not crush mint with a mortar and pestle. I don’t. I know that most do. I also don’t use sugary syrups. Do you want to know my secret?

I use just add honey mint to be iced tea. Genius, I tell ‘ya!

There is always a fresh brew of the tea in the fridge, so I tried it one day. Whether alone or in the company of friends, just add honey knows how to be the life of the party!

6 oz ::brewed just add honey mint to be iced tea
1 1/2 oz ::your favorite rum (I like light rum, but do your own thing)
1 tbsp ::sugar (unless you sweetened the tea)
1/2 oz ::lime juice (don’t cheat here folks. use a real lime!)
2 oz ::club soda, sparkling water, something bubbly
Pour the tea first. Add crushed ice, rum, sugar, and lime juice. Shake it up or pour from one glass to another. Add the bubbly. Garnish with mint leaves to impress your friends.
