In celebration of Chinese New Year, Australian tea brand Dilmah devised a range of sweet and fruity tea based cocktails. Just the right treat for an afternoon wedding don’t you think?
Today’s Moroccan Mint Mojito might just be my favourite- as a mojito lover through and through! The fresh mint tea blended with lime juice and white rum and topped with fresh mint make for a refreshing Summer cocktail!
90ml Dilmah Green Tea Moroccan Mint
30ml White Rum
15ml Lime Juice
15ml Sugar Syrup
Brew the tea, strain and leave to cool
Muddle the mint leaves
Mix all the ingredients together and serve in an ice filled glass
Blow your egg. Start by poking a small hole in each end of an egg using the skewer. Over a small bowl, blow as hard as you can until all the contents have been emptied. Fill with water, swish around and empty. Allow to dry inside and out.
1. Print out the downloadable sheet and trim the labels and messages down to size. Stick the ‘amazing chick’ label inside the lid of the box using double-sided tape.
2. Roll up the message strip as tightly as you can and insert into one of the holes.
3. Paint the entire egg in a solid colour (hint: place it on the skewer for easy painting and drying) and allow to dry. Using a fine brush, add polka dots in a contrasting paint colour. Allow to dry.
4. Roll up a small piece of your offcut paper to form a funnel. Pour in a couple of teaspoons of glitter.
Place the egg in the box and it’s ready to present to the special chicks in your life and ask the question “will you be my bridesmaid?”
