I could not be more obsessed with this White Tea and Muddled Basil Mojito. Fresh brewed white tea mixed with a splash of rum and honey, muddled with mint and basil, and topped off with sparkling water. A deliciously refreshing mojito with a fresh from the garden taste. Perfect for both spring and summertime.
It’s my ideal cocktail for 3 reasons…
Reason 1: Liz sweetens her mojito with honey instead of sugar. This is very much something I love to do. As I prefer a cocktail that’s less sweet and heavier on the citrus.
Reason 2: White tea! In general, I’m not a tea drinker, but I love using tea to flavor cocktails. It’s honestly the only way I can enjoy tea.
Reason 3: In addition to mint, Liz also uses basil in the mojito. As you guys know, basil is one of my favorite herbs.
