• A muddler (or rolling pin)
  • A spoon
  • A long glass
  • 2 parts rum
  • ½ fresh lime diced into 4
  • 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 heaped bar spoons of caster sugar
  • Dash of soda water
  • Cubed ice
  • Crushed ice
  • Sprig of Fresh Mint

Put the four lime wedges into a glass, add the sugar and muddle (squish everything together) to release the lime juic.

SPANK your mint leaves - this bruises the leaves and releases the aroma. Rub the mint leaves around the rim of the glass and drop them in. Use a muddler, bar spoon (or even a rolling pin) to gently push the mint down into the lime juice.

Half fill the glass with crushed ice and pour in your rum. Stir the mix together until the sugar dissolves.

Top up with crushed ice, a splash of soda water and garnish with a sprig of mint.
