Dragon Mojito

Jean-François Desaulniers presents us with this festive cocktail that offers a flavour experience that perfect balances floral, aromatic and refreshing.  Sommelier Jean-François worked behind the tea bar in our Latin Quarter teahouse and specializes in a style of cocktails with less sweetness and more complexity.  He won the Canadian Tea Master’s Cup in Mixology in 2019.


  • 3 oz of Dragon Pearl chilled (We recommend an 8hr cold infusion of 2.5g per 250ml water.  If you don’t have time a hot infusion cooled on ice also works).
  • ¾ oz Thuya Gin (or another ‘foresty’ gin )
  • 2 oz white Cranberry juice
  • ½ oz lime juice.
  • Tonic water


Mix all the ingredients except the tonic water.  Serve on ice in a 10oz ‘Highball’ glass. Add a little tonic water and stir gently. Garnish with a slice of cucumber and a sprig of basil.

*for an alcohol-free version simply leave out the gin or, even better, replace it with an alcohol-free gin like Norois Esprit-de-London.
