Turkish Spice Mojito

We thought we’d spice up the classic mojito with this unique blend by Zhi Tea. The blend of spices in Zhi’s mint tea gives this staple cocktail a new edge and different flair. So, get to muddling and tasting the flavors of this familiar beverage with an exotic twist.

Turkish Spice Mojito

Makes 1 glass // Prep Time: 10 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 sachet of Turkish Spice Mint by Zhi Tea
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • ½ lime sliced into 4 wedges
  • 1 tbsp honey or 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 oz white rum
  • Club soda
  • Ice for serving
  • Mint sprigs and lime wedges for garnish


Heat the water to 212°F and pour over tea to steep for 5-6 minutes. Then remove the tea bag and set aside to cool.

In a tall glass combine the mint leaves and 1 lime wedge and muddle together. Then add in the honey/sugar and rest of the lime wedges. Muddle more to let the lime and mint juices create a nice fusion of flavors.

Next add in ½ cup of the tea and the rum and stir gently. Finish it off by adding ice cubes, topping with club soda, and garnishing with mint sprigs and lime wedges. Enjoy :)
