What is a brand of Moroccan Mint Tea that is easily accessible in the Bay Area? I know Mariage Freres Casablanca is amazing, but I'm looking for something a little easier to find and not quite so expensive to serve at a big party.
Jennifer Colliau, bartender at San Francisco's Heaven's Dog and owner of Small Hand Foods, loves using mint in her drinks, but she warns home bartenders against using wooden muddlers with this delicate herb. Use a spoon instead, lest you end up with a drink that tastes like toothpaste. This tip will come in handy when you're making your next Mojito.
