This simple, classic cocktail is a perfect sipping drink for warm days.

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


Units Scale
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar (raw sugar)
  • 1/2 lime cut into fourths
  • 2 ounces dark rum (White rum is traditional, and if you don’t like dark rum’s spicy flavor, by all means use white.)
  • club soda or seltzer water
  • ice


  1. Muddle mint, sugar, and lime in the bottom of a tall, sturdy glass, just until mint is bruised and limes have been mostly juiced. (If you over muddle, you will pulverize the mint, which is not what you want.)
  2. If you don’t have a muddler, use the end of a heavy wooden spoon instead.
  3. Add rum, and muddle a tiny bit more to mix.
  4. Fill glass with ice, then top with club soda. Serve with cocktail straws if you have them.
