Here is a wonderfully refreshing drink for a hot summer evening made with or without alcohol. Ingredients 10 fresh mint leaves 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges 2 tablespoons caster sugar 1 cup ice cubes 45ml white rum 125ml soda water
Method 1. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. 2. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice and fill the glass with soda water. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
