Ingredients 

  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves + a few leaves for garnish
  • 6 fresh raspberries + a few berries for garnish
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar + extra for sugar rim
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 2 oz white rum
  • ½ cup soda water

Directions 

Create sugar rim on your glass by wetting rim with lime juice and dipping in granulated sugar. Tip: Use two shallow saucers, one for lime juice and one for the sugar.

Add ice and rum and top with soda water. Garnish with more fresh raspberries, mint leaves and lime slices.

*Muddling is a gentle twisting motion that releases the flavors of your ingredients. Do your best not to shred the mint as it will release a bitter flavor.
