  1. Muddle the lime juice, sugar, and mint leaves together in the bottom of a cocktail glass until the mint has broken down a bit, about 1 minute. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Add the rum and soda water over the ice. Pour the mixture back and forth from from the glass to another glass to mix. Garnish with the lime wedge and enjoy.

I actually bought a muddler to make this recipe. This tasted good, but I couldn't really taste the mint at all. It tasted like limeade with a bite.

These are excellent! I do use a LOT more mint since I have a bunch in my garden and we like the mint flavor.

Excellent just the way it is! I love these. the fresh ingredients make it crisp.

When I can find some dry, old fashioned ginger ale (Jamaican), I substitute it for the soda water. It gives it some bite. It changes the taste but its great.

This was VERY refreshing. I made it a little stronger, a little bit more lime juice, but it is the perfect mix to drink cold on a beach.

I never used the mint because I don't like mint in my drinks... I really liked it and loved knowing what freshness takes like. I also used organic sugar(all natural). Probably a little more mixing but no longer use refined sugar, so I was very happy with the results. I liked how it taste, so I was pleased. If you like more of a lime taste, I would suggest using a whole lime instead of just 1/2 of a lime.
