Ingredients

  • 8 mint leaves (extra for garnish)
  • 4 tablespoons white rum (or 2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice (or 1 ounce)
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar (or to taste)
  • lime-flavoured sparkling water
  • ice

Instructions

  1. In the base of a cocktail shaker, add the mint, rum, lime juice, and agave, and muddle together.

  2. Fill the shaker about halfway with ice, cover and shake for about 20 seconds.

  3. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice.

  4. Top off with sparkling water.

  5. Garnish with mint leaves and lime slices/wedges.

Recipe Notes

No cocktail muddler?  Use a wooden spoon.

 

Not sure how to muddle?  Using your muddler or spoon, press down lightly on your mint leaves and gently twist a few times.  Try not to break your mint leaves into pieces, only enough to release the flavours.  

 

No cocktail shaker?  Use a lidded Mason jar.

 

Make it a mocktail.  Replace the rum with sparkling water and add an additional teaspoon of agave (or more or less to your taste) to achieve your desired sweetness
