1 teaspoon sugar

2 to 3 fresh mint leaves

Soda

2 ounces fresh lemon juice

2 ounces fresh lime juice

Pulp from 1/2 lime

1-ounce rum

Add sugar, mint leaves and a touch of soda to a highball glass. Using a muddler, crush the mint leaves and blend the mixture. Add the juices, lime pulp and fill with ice. Add rum and top the glass with soda.

Serving suggestion: Garnish with a mint leaf and a straw. Encourage guests to stir their drinks with their straws to capture all the sweetness at the bottom of the glass.
