1 1/2 oz white rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons simple syrup (or white sugar)
6 leaves of mint, sparkling water
For 2 servings:
Place 1 teaspoon of sugar into each of two glasses. Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into each glass, drop in the wedge, and add 2-3 sprigs of mint. Use a spoon or muddler to mash the sugar, lime juice, and mint together in the bottom of the glasses. Fill each glass about half full with crushed ice. Pour 1/4 cup rum into each glass. Fill the glasses with sparkling water, stir, and garnish with additional lime wedges.
