A light and refreshing summer cocktail from Cuba. If you have mint leaves in your garden, it's a good way to use them. I like to add more mint than the recipe calls for and I use dark rum. A muddler is a long wooden device which can be found at most gourmet stores. If you don't have one, use the bottom handle of a wooden spoon.
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 lime (cut into four wedges)
- 4 mint leaves
- 1 sprig mint
- 2 ounces rum
- 2 ounces carbonated water
