Ingredients
 

  • 10-12 fresh mint leaves
  • 4 ounces fresh squeezed key lime juice
  • 1 ½-2½ tablespoons fine sugar
  • 3 ounces white rum
  • 8 ounces sparkling water

Instructions
 

  • Place the mint, lime and sugar in a cocktail shaker or jar with a lid. Depending on how sweet you like your drinks use more or less sugar. Using a muddler or large spoon, smash it all together until the sugar is dissolved. Pour in the rum.
  • Add a handful of ice cubes, place the lid on the shaker or jar and shake vigorously.
  • Fill two glasses with ice and some fresh mint sprigs. Strain the juice and rum mixture into the glasses equally and top each with equal amounts of sparkling water.

Notes

If you don’t have key limes, you can always substitute the juice of regular limes.
