  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 90 ml white rum
  • 250 ml soda water
  • Lime slices and mint leaves to serve


  1. In a sturdy glass or steel cocktail shaker muddle lime wedges, mint and sugar to release oils and juice and to dissolve sugar.
  2. Add white rum and gently mix.
  3. Fill serving glass with ice and pour over lime, sugar and rum mixture (depending on your preference mixture can be strained or whole ingredients left in for a more rustic appearance).
