• 10 fresh mint leaves
  • ½ medium lime, cut into 3 wedges, divided
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste (usually 1 is sufficient)
  • 1 cup ice cubes, or as needed
  • 1 ½ fluid oz white rum (usually coconut flavoured)
  • ½ cup club soda, or as needed


  • Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler and crush to release mint oils and lime juice.
  • Add remaining lime wedges and 2 tablespoons sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.
  • Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour in rum and fill the glass with club soda.
  • Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired.

Serves 1.

We drink to unfulfilled dreams.
