Sweet Green Tea & Ginger Mojito

Sweet Green Tea & Ginger Mojito | farmgirlgourmet.com #truviaHaving a trusty thirst quencher on hand when the summer days get warm is essential.  For the afternoon it’s a tall glass of sun tea & a splash of lemonade, but as the day turns to evening, I like kicking up the kid-friendly tea to an adults-only sipper by adding in a little rum and fresh mint.  A mojito made easy!  This recipe is so easy to make and can be kept in the fridge for a few days, if it lasts that long!  We’ve been making them every night – for testing purposes, of course.  🙂

My neighbor popped over and I made her (ok, not really “made”) take a sip and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since.  Imagine sweet refreshing tea with hints of fresh ginger, mint and rum.  It’s cold, crisp and delicious.  Did I mention it’s skinny?  The simple syrup is made using Truvia Baking Blend which has 75% less calories than white sugar.  I’m a huge fan of stevia and that’s exactly what Truvia is made from.  So skip the guilt and pour yourself a tall frosty glass of this green tea and ginger mojito on the next warm summer day.
