Even with my broken wrist in a cast I really wanted to participate during the #berrylove month. So I came up with this simple summer cocktail. Sorry short text..I have only one hand to type with. I am also taking one handed pics.

This is a cross between a Raspberry Iced Tea and a Mojito, I call it a Raspberry Minteato

Ξ Raspberry Minteato Ξ

2 cups of brewed tea
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup  raspberries
1/8 cup lime juice
12 mint leaves
8 ounces rum
1 1/2 cup club soda

Bring 2 cups of water to boil and brew the tea for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Cool tea to room temperature. Muddle the raspberries, lime juice and mint in a pitcher. Add rum, cooled tea and club soda to the pitcher and stir. Serve in a glass with ice. Makes 1 liter approximately.
