- 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon of fresh mint leaves (plus extra for garnish)
- 1 tablespoon of sugar or sweetener of your choice
- Ice cubes
- Club soda or sparkling water
- Lime wedges for garnish (optional)
1. Brew the Tea: Start by brewing 1 cup of tea using your preferred method. If using tea bags, steep them in hot water according to the package instructions. If using loose leaf tea, follow the recommended steeping time and strain the tea leaves before proceeding.
2. Muddle the Mint and Sugar: In a sturdy glass or cocktail shaker, muddle together the fresh mint leaves and sugar until the mint releases its aroma and the sugar dissolves slightly. This step helps to extract the mint flavor.
3. Add Lime Juice and Ice: Pour the fresh lime juice into the glass with the mint and sugar mixture. Add a handful of ice cubes to the glass.
4. Combine Tea and Stir: Pour the brewed tea into the glass over the ice and stir well to combine all the ingredients.
5. Top with Club Soda: Fill the glass to the top with club soda or sparkling water, giving it a gentle stir to mix everything together.
6. Garnish and Serve: Add a few extra mint leaves and lime wedges for garnish. Optionally, you can also add a slice of lime to the rim of the glass. Serve the Iced Tea Mojito immediately and enjoy the invigorating flavors.
Feel free to adjust the sweetness, lime juice, or mint leaves according to your taste preferences. You can also get creative and add fresh fruit slices such as strawberries or peaches to enhance the flavors.
Sip and savor the cool and vibrant Iced Tea Mojito on a sunny day or at any occasion you desire. Cheers!
