After the wettest May on record, June has arrived and the sun has most definitely got it’s hat on, hip hip hip hooray! This is the drink that I want at the end of a long sunshine filled day (especially after a day of gardening, yes I’m middle aged), I think it’s the freshness of the lime and mint together that really works for me. Aaaaaaannnnnd relax. Serves 1.
3 tsp sugar
6 ish mint leaves
15ml fresh lime juice
45ml white rum
Extra lime wedge
- Put the sugar, mint leaves, and lime juice in your glass and use a cocktail muddler (if you have one) or the handle end of a wooden spoon to bash the mint around a bit and dissolve the sugar.
- Tip in the rum.
- Fling in some ice.
- Top with soda water (or mineral water, its basically the same thing) and give it all a stir.
- Squeeze over an extra wedge of lime and drop it in for good measure.
- Drink and feel boozily refreshed.
