Mother’s Day “Dark and Stormy” Maté Cocktail

Posted Posted in Yerba Maté Cocktails

For Mother’s Day  a Dark and Stormy is the perfect way to wake up and then get through the Day’s events with a smile on her face.  And using our Ginger Maté will add the energy Mom needs for the festivities!

A Dark and  Stormy is a highball cocktail made with dark rum (the dark) and ginger beer (the stormy) served over ice and garnished with a slice of lime.[1].  

Here is our recipe loosely based on the original but we substitute the Ginger beer with our Ginger Yerba Maté:

  • Rub the rim of a Mixing (pint) Glass with rind of  lime, spin in dark coconut palm sugar (or, not) and fill to the brim with Ice, …
  • Fill the 2/3 glass with Yerba Project, Ginger Maté
  • add 2 ounces Dark Bermuda Rum
  • squeeze Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Garnish with a wheel of Lime
  • Stir.and sip.

Posted Posted in Uncategorized, Yerba Maté Cocktails

The Double Minted Maté Julep

The mint julep is a mixed alcoholic drink, or cocktail, consisting primarily of Kentucky bourbon, water, crushed or shaved ice, and fresh mint. As a bourbon-based cocktail, it is associated with the Kentucky Derby in particular.

Our version is , of course, made with our Yerba Project – Double Minted Yerba Maté.

Yerba Project – Double Minted Maté

So here is our Yerba Project MINT JULEP:

  • Take 10 mint leaves and mash them into the bottom of a pint glass or into the Traditional Silver Kentucky Derby Cup (The mint step is optional when using our Double Minted Maté but you can knock yourself out in the name of tradition!)
  • Fill a Mixing (pint) Glass with Crushed Ice
  • Fill 2/3 glass with Yerba Project, Double Minted Maté (no need for the traditional sugar as our Maté is slightly sweetened with Organic Blue Agave)
  • add 2 ounce Kentucky Bourbon & garnish with a sprig of Mint!
  • Slowly sip the Julep before and during the race, … then, down it when your horse looses. Repeat.
