Course Drinks
Servings 1 rocks glass


  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup or 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1 juice from 1 lime
  • 6 mint
  • 1 mint
  • 2 ounces white rum (measure with a jigger)
  • 2 ounces club soda


  1. Place the mint leaves into a rocks glass (approximately six ounces) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it.
  2. Add the agave syrup, then mash the mint with the lime juice and syrup (use a muddler or the thick end of a wooden spoon.)
  3. Let the leaves break up so the oils from the leaves flavor the juice and syrup.
  4. Add crushed ice and then the rum. Stir for 30 seconds, and top off with the club soda. Garnish with a mint sprig.


Adjust amounts for taller glasses.
