The perfect summer cocktail, a cross between a tall glass of fresh brewed iced green tea and a mojito! I think this is going to be my signature drink all summer, it's icy cool, and has the added bonus of antioxidant rich green tea.
1tbspfresh lime juice
4large spearmint leaves(plus more for garnish)
4baby arugula leaves
2tspsugar(I used raw, use your favorite sweetener)
1/2cupbrewed green tea(chilled)
Muddle the lime juice, mint, arugula, and sugar together in a tall Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavors release.
Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea.
