Can you make mojitos with tea? Absolutely. Thanks to El Boozy Vegan.
No, really. That's what everyone calls him. He's an amazing bartender based in Brooklyn, New York. We shipped him one of everything we have and told him to do whatever he wanted. And his creative juices got to flowing!
First things first, what's a mojito?
A traditional Cuban drink that's usually made with white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint. It's one of my absolute favorite adult beverages because of the herbaceous flavors. Plus it's kinda sweet and citrusy. It is the perfect summer drink, though I've been known to drink them year round...and pout when if I visit a restaurant that can't make one. Like - why are you even open?
Anyway, El Boozy Vegan made Go Home Mojito, his take on the mojito with our Sister Sister tea and So Icy. Sister Sister is a chamomile-mint tea with rose, lavender and cinnamon. It's one of our most popular teas! And So Icy is our newest honey release, a peppermint flavored honey that's perfection.
El Boozy Vegan plays up the mint in your typical mojito with a special Icy Sister honey that he blended using equal parts So Icy honey and Sister Sister tea. See? I told you this guy is amazing!
