A fun fact about me – I LOVE iced tea. I don’t drink pop much since I’m not a fan of carbonated drinks; but iced tea I can’t get enough of. I was super excited when I was invited to check out a fun event where we were served all sorts of creative drinks with Nestea.
The event took place on a really rainy afternoon at Lisa Marie restaurant where we were served up yummy eats to compliment all the creative drinks.
Because I don’t drink all my drinks were non-alcoholic versions but I was told the alcoholic ones were quite delicious 🙂
This mint TEA Julep cocktail was so amazing! I never thought that iced tea could be even more refreshing!
Here are some more photos of the event to wet your appetites!
The mint TEA julep drink was actually my favourite so I wanted to share the recipe with you:
Mint TEA Julep Cocktail (serves 1)
1 oz Bourbon (optional)
1 oz NESTEA reduction (bring 1 cup of NESTEA* to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover pot until liquid reduces)
2 tablespoons chopped mint
1 mint sprig
Muddle chopped mint in bottom of glass
Add reduction and bourbon
Fill to brim with crushed ice
Garnish with mint sprig
*for a reduced calorie version substitute Nestea for Nestea Zero
Hope you enjoy! What’s your beverage of choice?
