Zain’s Mint Julep Mojito *Featuring DavidsTea*

*HEALTHY COCKTAIL ALERT*

Summer has finally arrived and that means barbecues and patio parties…and maybe the occasional cocktail. For us clean eaters and health conscious folk, sugary cocktails are to be avoided at all cost but this recipe gives you the freedom to choose if you wish to opt for a healthier cocktail as a treat or enjoy the non-alcoholic version with no compromise on taste.

¼ Cup Fresh Mint

11/2 Cups Strongly Brewed Mint Tea (steeped and cooled) *I used Mint Julep DavidsTea

1/8 Tsp Powdered Stevia

Juice of 11/2 Limes

1 Cups Sparkling Water

Ice

2 Shots White Rum of Your Choice OR 7-10 Drops Rum Flavouring

Directions:

1. Muddle lime and mint in the bottom of a jar, sprinkle stevia over top.

2. Add ice, cooled tea and rum or rum flavouring, top with sparkling water and garnish with mint and lime.
