Many of you asked for this drink recipe after seeing it on my Project 365 post. It is a very light and refreshing summer drink!
Makes 1 serving
8 fresh mint leaves
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
2 ounces white rum
2-3 ounces seltzer
4-6 fresh raspberries
- Place mint leaves, lime juice and sugar in a highball glass (something tall and narrow is perfect). Using the straight end of a wooden spoon, gently press on leaves to release flavor (“muddle” is the official term).
- Fill glass with ice cubes. Pour in rum. Top off with seltzer. Drop in raspberries, and sip!
