Rum

Green Genie

The how to 

First make your tea if you want to be 100% authentic and let it cool down. If you have a favorite green tea from a store you can use that as well, I find them to sweet for this cocktail.

In a mixing glass full of ice add rum, your tea, jasmine syrup, lime juice and stir well.

Double strain into a gin glass with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with a mint sprig and lime slices. 

Put the strawberries and the litchi(just half peeled) on the BBQ stick and garnish the glass with them.
