Twist of orange rind
Combine all ingredients and serve
10 fresh mint leaves
2 T white sugar
1 ½ oz white rum
Club soda (about ½ cup, to taste)
In a glass, combine lime juice, mint leaves and sugar and muddle to release flavors. Add rum, soda water and ice.
We generally stock simple syrup but it is also easy to make on your stovetop. And less expensive.
Combine 1 cup each of sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool and store in a clean jar for up to a month.
