Moroccan Mint Ice Tea with Cucumber Vodka
Okay so clearly I need to come up with a better name for this DELICIOUS and REFRESHING cocktail…but seriously sipping on this drink this past weekend had me in the summer mindset! PERFECT and EASY cocktail for entertaining guests or sipping on the boat while out on Shawano Lake! 😉
- 8 teaspoons Moroccan Mint Green Tea
- 2 quarts of water
- 1/2 cup sugar (I used rock sugar but white sugar also works)
- Prairie Cucumber Vodka
- Fresh Mint, for garnish (optional)
Place 8 teaspoons of Moroccan Mint Green Tea into a diffuser (I think the disposable paper bags are easiest but any large diffuser will work).
Bring 1 quart of water to a boil on the stove. Once boiling, remove from heat and place the diffuser of Moroccan Mint Green Tea inside. Set timer for 5 minutes.
Once timer is done, remove the tea diffuser and set aside. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and mix until dissolved. Add 1 quart of COLD water and place into a pitcher. Place the tea in the refrigerator to chill.
Once tea is chilled and ready to be served, add 2 ounces of Prairie Cucumber Vodka to a glass with ice. Add 6 ounces of the tea and stir. Garnish with fresh mint!
