Summer isn’t over yet. Sure, school has started but there are still a few more hot, sunny days to come, before fall arrives. So make sure that you set aside some time to relax on your deck or in a lounge chair at the beach with a cocktail. Here’s our favorite!
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 teaspoons of sugar
2 sprigs of fresh mint
3 ounces of sparkling water (San Pellegrino or Perrier)
2.5 ounces of white rum
5-7 ice cubes
Squeeze the lime into the glass and then add the fresh mint sprigs.Crush and blend them together.
Add the sugar and the sparkling water.
Stir all ingredients together with a muddler or with the back of a spoon.
Add white rum, and the remaining ice cubes.
Top off the drink with the remaining 2 or 3 fresh mint leaves.
Drink, Relax & Enjoy!
