Cocktail recipe: Green tea mojito

Here's a recipe for a green tea mojito. I've modified this recipe, replacing bottled green tea with a freshly brewed infusion of authentic loose-leaf green tea (such as yours truly's).

juice of half a lime
6 large mint leaves
brewed green tea – 75 ml (1/3 cup)
white rum – 30 ml (2 tbsp)

Pour the lime juice into a highball glass. Add the mint and crush with a spoon. Fill a glass with ice and add the tea and rum. Stir well and garnish with a mint leaf, if desired.

The green tea mojito served up at Kyoya in San Francisco.
