Easy Sparkling Lime Summer Cocktail
10-12 fresh mint leaves (plus more for garnish – optional)
4 ounces white rum
3-4 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons raw sugar
6-8 ounces of club soda or sparkling water
Muddle the fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a large cocktail shaker to release their natural oils. Add in the white rum, lime juice and raw sugar and shake to blend, about 30 seconds. Strain evenly into two tall, ice-filled glasses and top each with your choice of club soda or sparkling water. Serve with a garnish of fresh mint leaves. Makes 2 servings.
