Author: Ask Anna
  • 4 sprigs of fresh mint
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • Ice
Juice of 1 lime
  • 3oz White rum
Soda water
  • Mint leaves and lime for garnish
  1. Rinse mint sprigs and then place them in the bottom of a cocktail shaker, add the simple syrup.
  2. Use a muddler to crush the mint leaves. (The more you muddle them the stronger the mint flavor will be).
  3. Add ice, lime juice and rum.
  4. Replace the cocktail shaker lid and shake until the ingredients are well blended.
  5. Pour the mixture into a Collins glass and top off with soda water.
  6. Garnish the glass with a mint leaf and a twist of lime.
