Trust me, you don't need to screw around with a good thing like some people suggesting here - using simple sirup, (2 cups of sugar to 1 cup of water, 2:1), unless you do this for a living and need to cut corners in order to be more productive.
When it comes to making one for yourself or you friends, just use the real granulated sugar or sugar cube. Remember; muddling the ingredients together and especially the lime and mint leaves, require a good friction, grinding motion which you won't get from simple sirup!Whenever you'd be muddling sugar with citrus zests, granulated sugar is the "secret", it just requires a little extra effort which I think is well worth it especially when you perform in front of your buddies. Also don't worry about needing the "real" Cuban mint....any fresh bunch from your local store or your own yard will do. For a nice change you can even substitute fresh mint with fresh basil. Try it and let me know what you think.
