Toast to the Weekend: Tea Time with a Kick

Everyone has a recipe for an iced tea with a little kick. There are even famous iced teas with no actual tea in them. But what to do during the winter months, when a hot cup of tea is used to keep away the chill? Why not kick it up a notch with this recipe? A minty green tea beverage, with white rum. Not too complicated a cocktail, but strong enough to suit any taste. Cheers to a fabulous weekend!
