Moroccan Green Tea Mojito

Recipe by sofie-a-toast
READY IN: 20mins


  • Green Tea Simple Syrup
  • 1
    cup very strongly brewed gunpowder tea
  • 1
    cup sugar
  • Mojito
  • 1 12
    ounces white rum (I prefer gin, which works just as well)
  • 34
    ounce simple syrup
  • 1
    dash bitters
  • 2
    sprigs mint
  • ice cube


  • For the syrup:
  • In a medium sauce pan, combine two ingredients and stir over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Bring tea mixture to a light boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a half of the original amount to create a syrup. This will take 15 minutes or more, depending how thick you want your syrup. Let cool.
  • For the drink:
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, simple syrup, bitters, and a sprig of mint. Shake well. Pour into your glass (with or without ice cubes) and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy.
