A minty and sweet drink for any occassion. Perfect first date drink or for beach sippin'.
Lightly muddle the mint and sugar with a splash of soda water in a mixing glass until the sugar dissolve and you smell the mint. Squeeze the lime into the glass, add rum and shake with ice. Strain over cracked ice in a highball glass. Top with soda water, garnish with mint sprig and serve.
Looking for a good Light Rum to use for this drink? DrinkingBuddy recommends Cruzan Light Rum.
You can find out more information about Cruzan Rum at the official site.
Next time you have it, ask for Bacardi 151 instead of the light rum. Good times.
Be careful when you shake it with ice. It can mince the mint leaves down to tiny pieces which can ruin the drink.
