"Based off my mint tea punch recipe, this is a quick and easy way to make an adult pitcher drink that is wonderful for those hot summer nights! The mint and rum make this cocktail reminiscent of a mojito, but the tea and juices give it an added twist! Add more rum to make it stronger, or reduce the kick by adding less rum and more cold water. It's a versatile, refreshing, and above all, easy drink to make. Serve over ice, and garnish each glass with orange and lemon slices and a sprig of mint. Enjoy!"

- Place tea bags and mint sprigs into a large pitcher. Pour in boiling water; steep for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove tea bags and mint; before discarding, squeeze excess tea back into pitcher. Stir in sugar until dissolved; add orange juice and lemon juice. Pour in cold water and rum. Refrigerate at least 4 hours to overnight.
- Cook's Notes:
- It's better to use a light rum (also called white or silver rum) rather than a spiced rum in this drink so that the mint and citrus flavors are not overshadowed.
