When our Union Square location first opened, customers clamored to get a particularly delectable tea drink, which was only available once the NYC ice fully melted. So whenever I am craving a delicious, refreshing beverage that is perfect for the springtime, I dig out this “oldie but goodie” – the moTEAjo.
Here is the recipe, for all to enjoy:
1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
4 oz lemongreen, chilled
Small bunch fresh mint (about 10 leaves)
Lime wheel (garnish)
2 oz light rum (optional)
Muddle mint, simple syrup and lime juice with pestle, add ice, tea (and rum, if using). Stir thoroughly to combine, garnish with lime wheel.
