Sweet Tea is mother’s milk in Texas. It’s a basic staple to life. Now throw in some mint, lime and rum and you’ve got one refreshing drink! I just made this amazing sweet tea mojito recipe and LOVED it! I hope you enjoy as well!

- 5 bags of black tea
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 handfuls of fresh mint
- 4 cups water
- 3 limes
- 1 1/2 cups light rum
Bring 3 cups of water to a boil and add in your 5 tea bags, 2 cups sugar and two handfuls of mint. Allow all to simmer while sugar dissolves (approx. 5 minutes), continually stirring.
Strain your tea, sugar and mint liquid into your serving pitcher and then add in the juice from 3 limes.
Add in 1 1/2 cups light rum to your tea mixture along with 1 cup of cool water and another handful of mint. Stir and chill.
