Who doesn’t love a good cocktail? Now that the weather is warming up and the summer sun is just around the corner, refreshing and hydrating beverages are more popular than ever. This recipe not only fulfills those cravings but also packs tons of antioxidants and only a tiny bit of added sugar so you feel healthy as you indulge. My favorite part about this recipe is how many variations it has! It was originally inspired by a Green Tea Mojito I had last summer, but it can easily be made into a Green Tea Mint Julep by swapping the white rum for your favorite bourbon. Or, if alcohol isn’t your thing you can always make it into a mocktail and skip the rum or bourbon all together! Either way, sip this refreshing chiller knowing you’re getting a boatload of antioxidants while also fueling your soul.
