  • A large glass to muddle the mint and rum

  • Stir
  • Add the whole sprigs of mint and muddle (mash up) into the rum along with 3 squeezed lime wedges.
  • Add ice to your martini shaker, pour in the muddled goodies and shake vigorously.
  • Shake until it is so cold your hand hurts!
  • Pour (not strain) everything over two iced pint glasses.
  • Add just a splash of plain soda water, so you just get a hint of bubbles and serve immediately.
  • If you like, rim each glass with a light coating of sugar.
  • To Rim: rub a lime segment along the rim of each glass, dip onto a plate of sugar, shake off excess. Or for each pint glass, add about 2 ounces of simple syrup.
