It’s summer people! Whether we like it or not!
Living in Florida has its perks: Disney, beaches, Miami…you name it! But the one thing you gotta know is…..FLORIDA IS HOT. Really hot. Starting early March through almost Christmas.
So we Floridians like to think of new ways to keep cool during the summer and I got the idea to make a tea-inspired mint julep.
Just as nutty, caramel-y and creamy as bourbon, Rooibos is a great alternative when making a lovely chilled glass of mint julep!
Muddle mint with one spoonful of sugar. Top the glass with ice. Pour freshly steeped Rooibos tea over the ice.
Add a sprig of mint as garnish. Enjoy!
You may notice that this drink doesn’t have alcohol. But who’s stopping you?! Go ahead, add a splash or two of your favorite bourbon to the rooibos!
Keep on steeping, my fellow tea lovers!
