Have I mentioned that I love mojitos? Because I LO-VE mojitos.
Mojitos and me. Me and mojitos. We go together just like me and mojitos.
So much so that I worked it into my favorite meal with this mojito salad dressing. It hasn't touch the peanut butter turf yet, but I wouldn't put it passed me to see it down the pipeline.
What makes these mojitos delicious & refreshing
- fresh mint
- matcha powder
- white rum
- seltzer water
How to make a matcha green tea mojito
Start by adding a tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of matcha powder, and a handful of fresh mint leaves to a cocktail glass. Squeeze in juice from 4 lime wedges, and add them to the glass. Muddle ingredients together by lightly mashing with a muddler, or the end of a spoon.
Pour in 1 ounce of white rum, and stir together until matcha powder is mixed in. Fill glass with ice cubes, and top with seltzer water. Garnish with a spring of fresh mint and wedge of lime before serving.
- Don't press too firmly on lime or mint leaves when muddling since they tend to get bitter if muddled too much.
- Use a lime seltzer water for added flavor.
- Adjust sweetness to your preference by adding more or less sugar, or swapping out for honey for a different flavor profile.
Can you make this green tea mojito non-alcoholic?
Definitely! You can simply leave out the rum, or if you want something a little sweeter, swap out the seltzer water for tonic water.
Can you make this in a pitcher?
Yup! I would use the recipe x 4. You can also use the scale feature in the recipe card to double or triple the recipe. I would suggest use the 2x feature in the recipe card and doubling what the recipe calls for to get 4 servings, or simply adjust to how many servings you would like.
Money-Saving Tips for this Mojito Recipe:
- Buy store brand. Opting for the store brand for sugar and seltzer water can be less expensive without sacrificing flavor or quality.
- Purchase in bulk. If you're making a bigger batch, or will use the leftovers, purchase the bigger bottles of seltzer water instead of the cans for a more cost-effective option.
