Most of us recognize or have tried the famous Cuban drink Mojito. The combination of rum, sugar, lime, sparkling water, ice and mint leaves gives this drink a refreshing quality that is perfect for summer. For many tea drinkers Southern Sweet Tea is the summertime drink of choice, but what if we want something… with a kick?
There is a new drink variation of Mojito – a Moteato which uses the popular Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka as a base. Except for the vodka this recipe uses conventional Mojito ingredients – lime juice, soda water, mint leaves and alternately white rum. Here is what you’ll need:
1.5 oz. Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka
1 oz. White Rum
7 Mint Leaves
1 tsp. of sugar
1. Muddle mint leaves with sugar, lime juice and little bit of soda until the sugar dissolves and the mint aroma intensifies.
2. Add ice, Firefly Vodka and Rum and shake everything together.
3. Pour over ice into a highball glass and top with soda. Garnish with a mint spring and enjoy!
