Recipe: Classic Mojito — Recipes from The Road

(Image credit: Tara Donne)

Walk into any bar in Miami and, chances are, you'll find a mojito on the menu — or, at the very least, a bartender who can make you a mojito.

This chai latte gives you complete control over your chai latte experience, from the tea and the spices, to the sweetener and type of milk. The result is a creamy cup of black tea subtly spiced and fragrant with cinnamon, black pepper, and ginger, and just the right amount of sweetness, so near perfect that you'll skip the coffee shop chai (or the carton) and come home to make a pot of this at tea time.
