6-8 fresh raspberries
8-10 fresh mint leaves
2 tsp sugar or simple syrup
3 tbsp fresh lime juice, or the juice of one lime
2 oz light rum
6 oz club soda
In a glass, muddle together mint leaves, raspberries and sugar until it’s smooth and smells like a summer vacation. Add lime juice and rum, stir well.
Add plenty of ice, then top off the glass with club soda—or sparkling wine if it’s an extra special occasion. Add a few fresh raspberries and a sprig of fresh mint as garnish before serving.
If serving a crowd, increase the amounts of mint, raspberries, lime, sugar and rum, muddle them in a cocktail shaker. Pour that mixture into glasses then top each with ice and club soda.
