- 1 1/2 fluid ounces of white rum
- 1/2 cup club soda
- 10 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
- 1 cup ice cubes
Put the mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a smallish Collins glass. Use a muddler to crush the lime and mint, which releases the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more wedges of lime and the sugar, and again muddle to free the lime juice. Do not strain this mixture. Fill the glass with ice (almost near the top) Over the Ice, pour the rum and fill with carbonated water. Stir and taste your concoction. If it needs more sugar then add it if desired. Garnish your drink with one final lime wedge.
