Here is what's cookin' these days...
Our friend Sophie introduced us to a new cocktail mixer called Owls Brew and we are hooked! Owls Brew is a low calorie mixer comprised of flavorful tea, agave, and water. That's it! You can simply mix the Owls Brew with the liquor of your choice, but we wanted to take our favorite cocktails and give them a low-cal flavor upgrade.
This is our twist on the mojito. We used the Wicked Green Owls Brew because it comes with a habanero kick, so we’ll call this one a Mo-heat-o. J A traditional mojito is made by muddling sugar with lime juice and mint leaves. We substituted the sugar for the slightly sweet Owls Brew, but it you want a sweeter cocktail go ahead and mix some sugar back in.
- 2 oz Wicked Green Owl’s Brew
- 1.5 oz white rum
- 12 sprigs of mint
- Juice of one lime
- 1 tsp sugar (optional)
Use a muddler to smash together the lime juice, mint leaves, and sugar if you'd like. Add the rum and Owls Brew, cover with another glass and shake until cold and well mixed. Garnish with mint leaves and a lime wedge.
