Makes one serving:
2 T white sugar
24 mint leaves
Juice of 4-5 key limes (about 2 oz)
1.25 oz. Light or Golden Rum (I used light, but have heard Golden is tasty!)
2 oz club Soda
If you have a mortar and pestle use it! If not, simply put mint leaves, sugar and lime juice in a bowl and crush with a spoon until the leaves are softened in the mixture. Pour into drink mixer (if you don’t have a mixer just pour into a glass).
Add Rum, 4-5 drops Bitters then fill with club soda. If you’re using the drink mixer hold onto the lid TIGHT and shake once or twice. If you’re using a cup, quickly pour from one cup to another to mix well, then back again. Pour into your glass and enjoy!
