We've all heard of the health benefits of green tea these day, haven't we? Yes we have...thus I will dare to rationalize my little cocktail as being healthy in my mind! LOL. The flavor of the green tea is apt to get lost with the strong flavors of the rum and lime so resist the urge to add more of these ingredients. I recommend Tazo Zen Green tea blend as I think it has enough umph to stand on its own here. Original idea came from the Mellow Monk. Adapted to suit my tastes.
Received this recipe through a local grocery store coupon flyer. I could not stop myself from trying this! I know there is a friend on here (CoffeeB! :) ) who would love this just as much as I did. Like a melted peanut butter cup in a mug! Yummy!
These ice cubes are fun to add to lemonade or other refreshing drinks. You could substitute any type of fruit, depending on what you have on hand. I like these in iced tea or lemonade. Prep time does not include freezing time.
In my never-ending quest to figure out what to do with that bottle of burgundy wine I opened. (I only used 1/2 cup of it in a previous recipe) I found this recipe for Sangrias. Now what do I do with the rest of the orange liqueur? I see another mission in my future.
