|Mick's Karma Bar's Mojito Iced Tea|
On my last visit to California, I ate at my favorite burger restaurant, Mick’s Karma Bar. In addition to a habanero burger with French fries, I also treated myself to a mojito iced tea. Since this drink is so refreshing in warmer weather, I wanted to recreate it at home. My version isn’t quite as tasty as Mick’s, but it’s a good substitute when I can’t travel 3,000 miles to get an iced tea!
Mojito Iced Green Tea

Prepare green tea according to package instructions and allow to cool. Heat water, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature. In a tall glass, muddle the mint and lime together. Add the tea, about 1 tablespoon sugar syrup (to taste), ice, stir and enjoy.
