Flavored tea recipe – Red Mango Rum Mojito
Here is another flavored tea recipe involving one of my favorite herbals, Rooibos. Not only do you get a refreshing splash of flavors, but you get the benefits of Rooibos as well. We recommend white rum or coconut rum as opposed to dark rum, as we do not want to overpower the light bodied mango flavor of the Rooibos.
1/2 cup (4 oz.) of brewed mango flavored Rooibos (or Red Mango Rooibos)
1 oz. white rum
2 sprigs of fresh mint
1 tsp sugar
1 lime wedge
Crushed or cubed ice
Place 1 sprig of fresh mint leaves, sugar, and lime wedge into your glass. Now, muddle the ingredients with a muddler or small rolling pin to release the flavors. In a cocktail shaker, add Mango flavored Rooibos, rum and some ice and shake well. Add ice to glass and pour in Red Mango rum mix. Garnish with other sprig of mint and enjoy!
