This is the reason I started growing mint in my garden. This is an extremely refreshing cocktail, perfect for a hot summer day!
I usually use a cocktail shaker for this, but it's easy to muddle the ingredients in a glass.
Use a handful of mint.
Sprinkle with a tablespoon of sugar.
Muddle with a wooden spoon. Muddling releases the oils and flavour from the mint.
Add the juice of a lime and mix to dissolve the sugar.
And a shot of white rum.
Fill the glass with ice and top with club soda.
Drink on the deck with a good book. Refreshing!
