Last Call

The MoTeato

SARA ESSEX PHOTOGRAPH

Simple, bold drinks for big jazz

This month, the French Quarter Festival takes up a whole weekend, April 9-11. Then we have the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which rolls for two big weekends, April 23-25 and April 29-May 2.

It is a hectic time because you really don’t want to miss a moment of either event. It is also a time to make matters as easy as you can because you’re going to have plenty to do, and preparing the correct accompanying beverages is a challenge.

You don’t want to bring something to the festivals that’s not festive, nor do you want to be stuck at the bar prepping, muddling, straining and shaking.

We have, as usual, the solution. The MoTeato is simple, tastes great, goes down easy, and you can make several at a time, thus saving yourself for more important pursuits such as music, food, artwork, buying commemorative shirts and trying to find your friends, your car or both.  

The MoTeato

1 ounce Don Q Mojito Rum
3 ounces iced tea, unsweetened
Lemon wedge
Ice

Pour iced tea into rum, over ice. Squeeze lemon wedge, then rim glass with lemon.

(Additional hint: 1 bottle of Don Q Mojito Rum can be added to 1 gallon of unsweetened iced tea. Now you have drinks for your entire crowd.)
