Green Tea Mojito Mocktail

The 100% fruit juice naturally sweetens our nonalcoholic drink rather than sugary syrup or other added sugar that’s in restaurant-style mojitos. Traditional ingredients lime and mint complement green tea, which is the unexpected twist.

This recipe is supported by Lipton. *The American Heart Association’s relationship is limited to unsweetened Black Tea and Green Tea.

Ingredients

Servings   4   Serving Size   1 1/2 cups per serving

  • 4 cups water
  • 4 single serving bags green tea
  • 32 to 40 sprigs of fresh mint and 4 sprigs of fresh mint (divided use)
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 cup 100% white grape juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 medium limes)
  • 1 medium lime, cut into 4 wedges or lime zest twists (optional)

  1. Add the water to a small saucepan. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the tea bags. Let steep for 4 minutes. (Be sure the tea bags are submerged.) Discard the tea bags. Let the tea mixture cool for 30 minutes. Pour into a water pitcher. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until chilled.
  2. At serving time, add the mint leaves to four glasses. Using a muddler or wooden spoon, mash the mint leaves several times to release their juices. (Don’t mash into pulp.) Add the ice.
  3. Stir the white grape juice and lime juice into the tea mixture. Pour into the glasses. Garnish each with a lime wedge and remaining mint leaf.

Cooking Tip: To get more juice from citrus, before slicing, microwave the fruit on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds, or until warm. When cool enough to handle, use a citrus reamer or handheld juice press to juice the citrus.
