Backyard Tea

Unfortunately we’re not on our favorite island swaying in a hammock this weekend, but we’re still looking forward to relaxing and enjoying a little Rum Therapy in our own backyard. We ran across this recipe from Sailor Jerry called “Backyard Tea” that sounds just like what we’re looking for – easy, cold, refreshing and spiked with some tasty Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum.

Arnold Palmer with a Kick

Fore!! I mean – SCORE!! I ran across a recipe for a rum spiked Arnold Palmer the other day and being the golf enthusiasts we are, thought we’d give it a try. Unfortunately, the liquor stores in our area don’t carry a very wide selection of, well, anything – so try as I might, I could not locate the bottle of Don Q Mojito rum that the recipe called for. Undaunted, we figured we’d create our own version for now and this is what we came up with. It’s easy, neat and classy and I think it’ll be perfect for after my round this Friday where I play with a lovely group of talented ladies who actually tolerate my occasional “hand” wedge from the bunker!!

1/4 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice.

Lightly muddle mint leaves and lime juice. Add rum, iced tea and lemonade. Strain into a large glass over ice, shake and then pour into smaller glasses over ice. Garnish with mint. If you like a sweeter taste, add 1/2 to 1 tsp. simple syrup to the mix!
