Ole Year Offerings (2006): Sarina’s Mint Tea Cocktail

Mint Tea Cocktail

Welcome to the first in my ‘Ole Year Offerings’ Series. In Trinidad ‘Ole Year’s’ is how we refer to New Years Eve. Much as it is around the world it is a time for gathering, celebration and anticipation. Hopefully the recipes that I’ll be sharing all this week will help you to organize an ‘Ole Year’s’ that is both entertaining and stress-free. All of these recipes should go together pretty quickly. Actual kitchen time usually runs under 30 minutes (not counting ‘resting periods’). This , my first offering, is a Mint Tea Cocktail. It’s sweet with a sinuous rum undertone that sneaks up on you. Serve ice cold over crushed ice for maximum impact. Feel free to substitute the rum with apple juice for an equally refreshing ‘mocktail’! :D

    I love mint tea, and mint tea with a kick should be good.

    Oh yes…my darling…I even took your poll..LOL.
    Thanks for the link.
    I think that perhaps I’ll be trying quite a few of yours.
    I really like the little additions of history and info you put into your recipes.
    It’s reallly informative and interesting for me.
    I’m someone who loves food from all places, and am more than willing to try to make anything that looks good to me…but don’t ask me to make roti.
    My inlaws still tell the story of “Serbian frisbees” at most family gatherings.
    :)
