Start off by gathering all of your ingredients and supplies. NOTE: I forgot to include the muddler.
Throw in a few mint leaves into the empty Highball glass.
Then, add in 1-2 tsp of sugar.
I only added 1 tsp. :)
Use your muddler to grind the leaves and sugar together. Make sure to press and make a twisting motion.
Squeeze a lime (or half) in with the muddled leaves and sugar.
Now the good stuff: add in 2 oz. of your favorite light rum!! :D
Mix the ingredients together aaaaaaaand...
...fill the glass with ice! :)
Fill the rest of the glass with Soda/Sparkling water.
Finally, garnish with a mint sprig. :)
A lovely cocktail to enjoy with some friends. This is the first time making this drink and I'd like some feedback. Otherwise, enjoy! Please don't forget to FOLLOW and drink responsibly! :)
