Hot Mojito Tea

James Carrier

Notes: The mojito - a mint-laced rum cocktail - might be the hottest drink in town these days, but it's served ice cold. We've turned the temperature on its ear for the holidays. To warm glasses, fill with hot water, then drain. Garnish each glass with a mint sprig and a lime slice.
