Let’s talk mojitos, friends. Honestly, I’ve never really liked them. I tend to stay away from rum because it’s too sweet for me and I’ll be real with you: I get really bad hangovers. But why should I have to give them up when I can still drink them without the rum? My ‘mint tea mojito’ recipe is so simple and very festive for the holidays! You can actually serve it all year round, especially in the summer when you need something refreshing, but I think it’s perfect as a starter for your next holiday dinner.
I was actually very excited about this recipe because I received the cutest little package from Lux Tea Company, and one of the flavors was Moroccan Mint. You all know I love Morocco, and if you didn’t know… I also LOVE all things mint! I tried out the tea and it was strong. A little product goes a long way, and I knew it would be delicious in more than just hot water.
For those of you who don’t know about Lux Tea Company—it’s a New Jersey-based company that began on the love of teas by a husband-wife duo, and together they sell every type of tea you can imagine. I mean, they actually have EVERYTHING—loose teas, blooming tea, instant chai, herbal blends, black tea, oolong teas, and much more. You can find so many unique flavors including a Purple Lychee, if you are into something fruity, or Chocolate Chai, which is exactly what I’m into (with pieces of rich dark chocolate).

This recipe requires you to make a quick mint tea-infused simple syrup with some lime juice, club soda, and a handful of mint leaves. Easy, right? Since this is a mocktail, it’s enjoyable for all ages! If you want to add some liquor, I recommend adding 4-6 shots of your favorite white rum!
I hope you guys enjoy my mint tea mojito recipe—courtesy of Lux Tea!
