Enjoy this refreshing summer drink made with agave nectar (instead of a simple syrup) and lime-flavoured sparkling water (instead of club soda).
In the base of a cocktail shaker, add the mint, rum, lime juice, and agave, and muddle together.
Fill the shaker about halfway with ice, cover and shake for about 20 seconds.
Strain into a tall glass filled with ice.
Top off with sparkling water.
Garnish with mint leaves and lime slices/wedges.
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
